The Lace Museum is a non-profit organization incorporated in 1981. It is one of two museums devoted solely to lace in the western part of the United States and showcases an extensive collection of lace and lace tools. The museum houses hundreds of tools, lace examples, books and other materials covering the history of lace, provides on-going lace making classes with experienced instructors, is staffed entirely by volunteers and is supported by donations, Friends of the Museum, the Lace Museum Guild and sales from the gift shop.

Call for entries. We need your help!
Lace entries are needed for next year’s San Mateo County Fair. The county fairs are an important way we get publicity for the museum. In order to continue demonstrating at the San Mateo County Fair, we need at least 6 entries in all types of lace for submission for judging at the fair. If we don’t have entries, lace will no longer be a entry class at the county fair and we want to maintain this important outlet for teaching the world about lace.
We will make it very easy for you. We will collect all of the entries at the museum and transport them to the fair. After the fair is over, we will collect all of the entries and return them to the museum for you to pick up. It’s that simple! Please help out if you can by entering your lace work of any style. We need all entries by spring 2014. Check for exact dates closer to that time.
