We are pleased to attend Lacemaking and Quilting days and events as and when our diary permits. We have an enviable collection of threads, tools and accessories, books and patterns for Lacemaking, Quilting and Needlecraft.
Whatever the event we attend we take our full range of product appropriate to the meeting in order to give your members the maximum product choice.
Scilla is often requested to be the events speaker and gives an interesting and humorous talk on a number of topics relative to Lacemaking & Needlecraft, their social history in respect of the local community, the families historic association with Lacemaking, her collection, and experiences as an textile craft enthusiast and teacher. A small charge is made for the talk.
