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 lace and other types of lacemaking. While we are interested in all forms of lace, our main concentration is on bobbin lace. The Guild promotes the exchange of ideas and techniques among its members, offers workshops by local and foreign teachers, and maintains a small library. The Guild meets on the second Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm and on the third Saturday for a day of lacemaking at the Trille des Bois School, located at 140 Genest Street, Ottawa.
