Many thanks to Jacqui Hyman of Textile Restoration Studio for an fascinating, enjoyable and informative talk, titled 'Sticky tape, moths and men', about the conservation and restoration of textiles. Members also took the opportunity to purchase a number of items and products to assist in the care and conservation of textile items.
Our next meeting takes place on Saturday, 3 August 2019. This meeting is an opportunity to make lace, chat, share ideas, look at the work of other members and make purchases from our sales table. If you are interested in learning more about lacemaking, this would be a good meeting to attend. You can come along as a visitor for £3.00, including hot drinks and biscuits.
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.
