The Lace Guild CIO Annual General Meeting 2023
Saturday 3rd June 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.
We are offering workshops, sessions, talks, shopping and a lacemaking area, all included in the day delegate rate, along with a seemingly endless supply of tea, coffee and cake, not to mention the delicious three-course lunch in a lovely venue.
Please bring your pillows, crochet hooks, tatting shuttles and needles to join in the ‘Lace and Chat’ session in the afternoon.
Suppliers so far confirmed are Alison Tolson, Acorn Bobbins and The Skein Queen. Watch this space for more...
SUPPORT US, have your say at the AGM, and have a fun day out...

Lace Holiday With Tuition

Did you know we can support The Lace Guild CIO by raising money every time we shop online? Support that means we can, for example, buy more books for the library - and it doesn’t cost us a penny!
We’re using easyfundraising, a free fundraising platform that allows us to earn money when we shop online. Easyfundraising works with over 7,000 online retailers, everyone from Tesco, eBay, Sports Direct, M&S, Deliveroo, Just Eat, Booking.com, and everything in between.
Once signed up all you need to do is start your shopping journey at the easyfundraising website, use the donation reminder or app (information will be provided when you register) and the retailer you shop with will send us a donation based on how much you spend.
This isn’t about asking you to spend more, but to make you aware that if you are making an online purchase anyway that by using easyfundraising you can donate to The Lace Guild at the same time and at no additional cost.
You and your family and friends can register for free now as it only takes two minutes and all you need is your email address.
