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.

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.
