This exhibition is attached to the large Creative Stitches & Hobby crafts fairs, (except the Birmingham one which is the Fashion, Embroidery & Stitch fair). I can’t find any details about the exhibition itself, although word is that it is impressive. No idea where the lace comes from. Perhaps someone who sees it can append a comment with more information. The Lace Guild will be exhibiting at each venue.

  1. I don’t know any more about ‘The Art of Lace’ exhibition other than what is on the ICHF website and that it is traditional laces, but at the Bluewater event the Lace Guild display will be sited opposite that display and will feature bold, modern, colourful lace pieces.

    The Lace Guild loaned a number of pieces, some was borrowed from Leicester museums, the All Hallows Museum in Honiton, and private collectors.
