Opportunity for Irish Crochet Workshop with International Expert

We are pleased to be working with Máire Treanor to present new online workshops for Irish Crochet. Please share your interest and level (beginner, improver, advanced) by email to lacemuseum@gmail.com or via Facebook message. This will help us structure the sessions appropriately.

Máire Treanor lives in Clones, Ireland and has been researching and designing Clones Irish Crochet Lace since the late 1980s. Her book ‘Clones Lace: The Story and Patterns of an Irish Crochet’ was first published in 2002, republished by Lacis in Berkeley, CA in 2010. She has been travelling to the States since 1999, and is a regular tutor with Lacis. She is part of a local group of volunteers who have been organizing the International Clones Lace Summer School since 1990. The 30th International Summer School is scheduled for June 2021, due to travel restrictions. Máire is also a regular contributor to Piecework magazine.

Update on Covid-19 Response

The safety and health of our community, including our dedicated volunteers and loyal customers, is always important to us. The museum is currently closed until at least May 3rd following Federal, State and County guidelines. When it is appropriate, we will re-open part time in order to protect our most vulnerable volunteers and their families. Until then, please take advantage of the resources on our Facebook page and this website. Here we have links to our online shop, our Amazon site, patterns you can use, and interesting lace info. We truly appreciate the lace making community and will strive to stay connected. We value your support and donations during this challenging time while we are closed.

In Person Workshops Change to Online

In person workshops in the spring and summer of 2020 have been cancelled and will be re-scheduled as soon as possible.

During this difficult period, we are fortunate that all workshop teachers for this period have agreed to online components. The first up will be Turkish Needle Lace (Igne Oya). Please visit our Workshops page for more details.

Response to Covid-19

The safety and health of our community, including our dedicated volunteers and loyal customers, is always important to us. We will be reviewing all events and assessing the Museum’s open hours as the world-wide Covid-19 pandemic evolves. Please note that we may need to adjust our operations and events based on future recommendations and/or volunteer availability.
