Our guild strives to promote interest in fine old laces and to preserve them for posterity, to study the history of lace, learn the names of laces, make lace and hold lace exhibits.


We primarily focus on handmade bobbin lace. For a short video of this technique, click below.

To learn more about other types of handmade lace, see this lovely website.

At our workshop, you will learn to make a bobbin lace tape sampler multi colored bauble and the basic steps to making bobbin lace. We will work with 6 pairs (12) bobbins and you will leave with enough knowledge to take a beginning tape class. Tape laces include lace from Northern Italy, The Baltic Countries and Russia.
