  1. […] Clones Lace announces some workshops […]


    • Last week, I stopped at Lacis looking for information about Irish lace. As I entered the store, there was the posting about the workshop this week! I signed up for all 4 days and can’t wait to try it. What a treat to have you teach right here in the bay area

        Hi Linda
        I just got your message tonight. At this stage, I know you well from the workshop in Lacis and I know you’re enjoying it. glad to see you tonight at the powerpoint demo. Looking forward to our trip to Sunnyvale Lace Museum tomorrow.

    I am trying to find out if the lace from my Irish grandmother’s wedding dress (1902) is Clone’s lace. The lace was removed from her dress and subsequently used on her daughter’s (that’s my mother) dress in 1926, her granddaughters’ dresses in 1951 and 1956 (that’s me!), her great granddaughters’ dresses in 1982 and 1990, and will be appliqued onto another great granddaughter’s dress this coming November 2011. I have pictures of the lace. Is there a way to post images to this site, and if I could do that, would someone be able to tell me if this is Clones lace or not? My grandmother was born in County Galway in Dunmore near the Doonmacreena Bridge.

      Hi Ivelise
      I would love to come to Brazil sometime to do some workshops in Clones Irish Crochet Lace.
      We would need to have a few workshops so that we could make it happen. The easiest way
      would be to continue on while I am in the States. Then the travel expenses wouldn’t be so
      high:) What part of Brazil do you live in? We’ll keep in touch. You can email me to my gmail
