Calling all Lace makers - ornaments and lace snowflakes needed!

We would be grateful to every lace maker who would make a Christmas ornament in any lace type to sell in our gift shop. Our visitors have requested lace snowflakes. Can someone please make us some? All of our museum expenses are paid with the generous donations from our friends and income from our gift shop and workshops.
