Keeping Lace Alive!
Lace is more than just a hankie edging . . .
The Edinburgh Lace Club (ELC) was 40 years old in 2020 and has nearly 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.
