The Lace Guild CIO Annual General Meeting 2023
at Warwick Conferences
Coventry CV4 7SH

The 2023 AGM will be our first ‘in person’ meeting since 2019, when we met in Haydock. It will also be our first AGM as The Lace Guild CIO, and we hope that you will support us so that they can continue.

The AGM will take place on Saturday 3rd June at Warwick Conferences (part of Warwick University) from 11am. This is a lovely venue, which is easily accessed by public transport. It is three miles from Coventry City centre and there are regular buses from the centre and railway station.

Doors will open at 10am for mingling, refreshments and shopping and will close at 4pm. We have invited several suppliers and have some exciting troubleshooting/taster sessions planned for you, so please support us. Places will be limited, so please plan to arrive early! Further details will be included in the Spring issue of Lace.

Please bring your pillows, crochet hooks, tatting shuttles and needles to join in the ‘Lace and Chat’ session in the afternoon.

A self-service three course lunch will be included in the day delegate rate (please refer to the booking form). There is ample free parking on site.
