Support The Lace Museum
The Lace Museum is a non-profit organization that relies on community support to continue in its mission to preserve, exhibit and educate. We are run entirely by volunteers. Your monetary support goes to our general operating fund or our building fund.
There are many ways you can support the museum.
Become a Friend of the Museum
The Friends of The Lace Museum is a group for all lace supporters world wide. This group’s mission is to support the museum in all of its endeavors.
Becoming a Friend of the Museum is easy and a bargain: $20 regular member or $10 senior member. With their annual dues, Friends enjoy a 10% discount on certain in-person workshops and the Museum’s informational emails on workshops, exhibits, demonstrations, sales and other events.
You can become a Friend, one of two ways:
- Submit an online enrollment form and payment » start here
- Mail an enrollment form and your check to the Museum » download form (pdf)
