Preston Lacemakers are a friendly group of people who meet to share their enthusiasm and enjoyment in the art and craft of lace, in all its variations. Our group includes men and women, young and old, beginners to experienced. Throughout the year we have workshops in both lace and other craft techniques. We also promote lace through exhibitions and giving demonstrations.

Penwortham United Reformed Church, where we meet, has been asked to host the first Penwortham Autumn Show on 4 October 2014, which is the first Saturday in October and, therefore, the day we would normally hold our meeting. We have, consequently, postponed our October meeting to the second Saturday, 11 October. The church and the committee are sorry for any inconvenience and would be grateful if you would amend the date in your diaries. It sounds like there will be a class or classes suitable for lace and other handicrafts, if any members wish to participate in the Autumn Show.
Ann will be running her popular Tambour Lace workshop at this meeting for those who wish to participate. Please bring along your normal tambour equipment and some beads. For those who are not learning tambour, we shall have our normal meetings where you will be able to make your own lace, chat to friends and get ideas and advice on current and new projects. If you are interested in learning a new skill or sharing your current lacemaking skills, come along and meet us.
