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 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!

This year's rally, held on 25 April 2015, was as enjoyable as always. Five new members mean that the committee is rejuvenated and will work towards our golden anniversary in 2018. Pictures of the day and displays are now available in the galleries section.

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'.
