The Lace Museum is proud to present four exciting workshops during four weekends between January and May 2020: Throwing the Modern Bobbin, TesseLace, Adapting Tatting Patterns and Turkish Needle Lace. Please visit our Workshops page for details and registration.

Also, we are happy to partner with Lacis Museum of Lace and Textiles in Berkeley, CA to promote their 4-day workshop in April for Clones Irish Crochet. Registration is live for this event! It’s the perfect gift for the lace maker in your life (which, of course, could also mean yourself)! In this captivating workshop series, skills will be developed in making the traditional motifs of small rose, large wild rose, shamrock, vine leaves and grapes, other motifs familiar in Irish Crochet which use the packing cord, as well as the unique Clones Knot filling stitch and edging. Details and registration information are in the pdf file linked here.

When you visit The Lace Museum this winter, you'll step into an Edwardian drawing room where a certain English Duchess is hosting her holiday tea.  Our exhibit features elegant dresses (circa 1910), formal table settings, and an array of china and linens from our collection.

While you're here, please be sure to browse the museum's lace-covered ornaments and other treasures for sale in our gift shop.


Online Shop Launch

Updated  October 12,  2019

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.
