The genius behind Make-Lace-With-Us and Makit is Scilla Stephenson, who comes from a very long line of English lacemakers. She and her husband Steve operate Makit Lace in their 17th century home in Offord Darcy, Cambridgshire. They attend numerous lace days as suppliers, and run two major events, the LQ&N and Fenland suppliers fairs. (The LQ&N used to be known as the East of England Lace & Textile Craft Supplier Fair, and the venue has changed). They also put on the Fenland Fair and the LQ&N Christmas Fair.
