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.
Exhibition in Horst, The Netherlands
5th February to 2nd April 2023
A selection from the lace collection of Museum de Domijnen in Sittard and Museum de Kantfabriek in Horst.
From the collection of De Domijnen we show loose strips of needle lace and bobbin lace.
The majority comes from the Charity Sisters of the Precious Blood, who gave girls' education in the Agnetenberg convent.
(Google will translate it)
Five young designers from the Design course at the Art Academy in Maastricht and their teacher took a closer look at some lace objects from the De Domijnen collection.
Aniek Jeuken, Claire Sillekens, Duo Wonder (Sofie Hermans and Katja Noelmans), Irana Jennifer Pachová, Lynn Biesmans and Thom van Schaik have each created new work inspired by an object from the collection of De Domijnen or a detail of it.
