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.

Lace Days

Over the years Preston Lace Makers have held Lace Days. These included sales tables, the opportunity to share the enjoyment of lace, marvel at a display of lace and listen to a speaker.
