Recent Acquisitions and Assessments Exhibition

From 9 January to 30 March 2019

At the beginning of the year we like to show some of the new pieces of lace and other items which have come into our Collection the previous year.  This time we are showing some wonderful pieces of Romanian Point lace which is based on a crocheted cord. Then there are amazingly fine Point de Gaze and mixed needle and bobbin Brussels lace; stunning machine made lace; plus Rosaline, tape lace, Bucks Point, Bedfordshire lace and a mug decorated with lace from Paperchase.

Two cases contain some of the successful work submitted for The Guild Assessment Scheme in Autumn 2018. If you are thinking of doing it, it is a wonderful opportunity to see what is expected.
