The Lace Museum is excited to unveil our Online Shop. You will currently find the full range of our publications for sale. The books will engage lace makers with step by step instructions and inspiration for additional exploring.  We have books to appeal to the history buff as well. Our book “Ma’s” Laces  chronicles coping with the stresses of war through the design and creation of exquisite bobbin lace, incorporating politically subversive themes.

The Online Shop will complement the Gift Shop located at the museum. The Gift Shop has a wide variety of vintage lace, lace making supplies and gifts made of lace. In the coming months, we will expand our Online collection to include items for those who cannot come to the museum.

As always, the proceeds of the Online Shop will contribute to sustaining The Lace Museum and its mission.
