Preston Lacemakers are a friendly group of people who meet to share their enthusiasm and enjoyment in the art and craft of lace, in all its variations. Our group includes young and old and beginners to experienced. Throughout the year we have talks about and workshops in both lace and other craft techniques. We also promote lace through exhibitions and giving demonstrations.

Next Meeting: Saturday 5 January 2019 Needlelace Workshop

There was lots of paper and glue and not much lace at our December meeting!  A friend of the Chairman came along to provide a workshop on Kusudama flower making. There was a real buzz as everyone folded and glued!  The results were delightful, as you can see in the Preston Lacemakers Photographs accessed via the links section on this page. We also enjoyed a surprise raffle, the traditional Secret Santa and a non alcoholic punch accompanied by savoury and sweet nibbles. A very good start to the festive season!

At our next meeting, Carol Fenlon will be giving a Needlelace workshop.  A pack will be provided at a cost of £3 to make an Easter Card and participants will need to bring a basic sewing kit including small scissors, sharp needles and tacking cotton.  Whilst only members can participate in the workshop, there will be other members making lace and chatting, so if you would like to visit us you are very welcome.
