'AGM, Grace and Lace'
Saturday, 18 April, 2015
St Peter' and St Paul's Church Hall, Wakefield, WF2 7NR
Following the AGM, the meeting will be devoted to lace and will be dedicated to the Memory of Grace Pacey, Honary member of the Society and expert, amongst other things, on lace. Many members will remember her input on several occasions during relevant meetings and ‘Roadshows’ over the years.
Our specialist at this Meeting, is Tessa Holmes, who is traveling over from Cheshire to be with us. Since the 1970’s, when lace first became her passion, Tessa has spent years cataloguing and conserving museum holdings as well as teaching lace-making to enthusiastic groups. She is currently vice-chair of the English Lace Guild. Her particular talk today centres around how Lace came to Liverpool, a topic which is certain to intrigue us all.
Our very own Anthea Bickley will augment the subject with two dress-samples from her own collection. We can all wallow!
The venue is adjacent to Junction 39 on the M1, with ample parking and disabled access all on the level. Our caterers will be on hand to serve a varied & appetizing (optional) buffet-lunch.
