The Ottawa Guild of Lacemakers, comprised of lacemakers from the Ottawa and surrounding areas including the Outaouais, is a non profit organization whose purpose is to promote the art of bobbin and other types of lacemaking. While we are interested in all forms of lace, our main interest is in bobbin lace.
