The Lace Guild

Introducing Lace Magazine

LACE is the magazine and newsletter of The Lace Guild which members receive each quarter, at the end of July, October, January and April. About a month after each 64-page issue appears we summarize its contents here, and feature an article from it.

Although current issues of Lace are only obtainable as part of a membership subscription, back copies may be ordered from The Hollies. Inspection copies for those considering membership are available for the price of postage (rates on application).

Featured Article

The article we feature from the July 2016 issue of Lace is about the Fringe Workshops held on the Saturday before this year's AGM in May. The article is provided as a pdf file which will open in a new window when you click on the link. (Javascript/scripting must be enabled in your web browser and Adobe Acrobat’s pdf plugin is required.)
