Welcome to the Lace Society


The Lace Society promotes and supports all types of lace making and an interest in lace in general. We are a membership organisation, offering a wide-range of lace related activities throughout the year.

We are looking forward to this year's Rally which will be held on 25 April 2015 at Cranmore Park, Solihull, West Midlands. For more information see the 'Courses, events and visits' section.

We are absolutely delighted that Pat Gibson has agreed to lead our retreat in November this year. Pat will be sharing her needlelace expertise in a course open to all levels of skill. We also have a new venue, the Bells Hotel in the Forest of Dean. Join us to develop your knowledge or to learn a new technique. More details can be found here. Applications close on 31 May 2015 and places are filling fast, so book now!

Recent additions to the website include photographs of the snowflakes made by members of the Lace Society, the Lace Guild and the Ring of Tatters for the Waddesdon Manor Christmas decorations. Follow this link to see them.

We welcome as members anyone interested in the making, collecting and teaching of lace, and lace artefacts of any type. Full details of the benefits of membership, its costs and an application form can be found in the 'Membership' section. 

Benefits of membership include access to our library of lace books - see the 'Library' section for categorised lists - a quarterly Newsletter - sample articles are in the 'Newsletter' section - and our annual Rally - see 'Courses, events and visits'.
