Welcome to the Lace Society website
The Lace Society promotes and supports all types of lace making and an interest in lace in general.
We are a membership organisation, run by members for the members, and offer a wide range of lace related activities throughout the year including courses, visits and competitions.
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 the 'Events' section. Photos from the Rallies and exhibitions are available in the galleries section.
Don't forget to enter our Christmas Lace Competition. If you've designed a piece of lace why not have a go. All entries to be judged by members at the 2017 Lace Society Rally. Download the entry form here. Good Luck.
Rally 2017 - Lace on the Edge - The Member's Display this year will be lace edges and frames! Almost everyone has made a lace edging at some point in their lace life. If you have - please bring one, two (or more!) along to the Rally for the display. Any type of lace, at any level is welcome. It doesn't matter if you have been making lace a month, a year or decades, all pieces will be welcome and we will display as many as possible. Our displays are always superb, thanks to you, the members.
