Keeping Lace Alive!
Lace is more than just a hankie edging . . .
The Edinburgh Lace Club (ELC) celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2015 with over 40 members.
We make many types of traditional British and Continental bobbin lace, as well as modern/contemporary lace. For example: Torchon, Bedfordshire (Beds), Honiton, Buckinghamshire (Bucks), Idrija, etc. Our members also enjoy Knitted Lace, Needle Lace, Crochet and Tatting.
From beginner to expert, all of us have a love of lace and lacemaking, which (like any craft) has been proven to be meditative, de-stressing, creativity enhancing and a great way to meet and make friends in a supportive environment.
Our members are all ages and share a love of
creating beautiful things in lace of all types and styles.
