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.

Our regular November retreat will be held at the Bell's Hotel, near the Forest of Dean. We are pleased to announce that the needlelace course will be complemented by a lacemaking retreat for you to do your own thing. More details can be found from the link on the left or by clicking hereSpaces are limited - please use this form to apply by 31 August 2015.

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'.
