ON this page we post information of events of interest to Guild members and other lacemakers that would normally appear in our magazine, Lace, but which was received too late to include in our current issue. Occasional corrections to the magazine or our publications are also posted here. Items are listed by date of posting, with most recent postings listed first.

Edit to the Baubles book
TAKE A BOX OF BAUBLES, COMPILED BY ROSEMARY GREEN - AMENDMENT
A gremlin has struck on page 2! Please note that the correct measurements for baubles are:
The standard bauble has a circumference of approximately 180mm and a height of 60mm. The larger bauble has a circumference of approximately 250mm and a height of 80mm.
As it says in the book, be prepared to experiment. Play with a photocopier to get the perfect fit!
I hope that this will help you, apologies for any inconvenience caused.
