The Wolds Lacemakers are a very friendly and extremely active group, including bobbin and needlelace, knitted, tatted or crochet lace. They are based at the southern end of the Yorkshire Wolds, in the area around Hull, with a membership of around 60.The group was formed back in 1985. The group will hold their 35th anniversary in 2020.
2017 is City of Culture for Hull and we will have, at our meeting in March, an exhibition of lace which has been made by our members available for the general public to view 1pm to 3.30pm. The entrance for this will be free. The general public will also have the opportunity to have a go on a practice pillow.
Meetings are held 4 times a year (January, March, May and November). The AGM is at the March meeting, and an Annual Lace Day is held in September. All meetings are held at the Marist Hall, 119 Cottingham Road, Hull. Wolds demonstrators can frequently be found at various other events throughout East Yorkshire. See their website, Facebook page or Twitter for further details.
Annual membership is £8.00.
