Master Class in Clones Lace and Irish Crochet
Lacis, Berkeley SFO . July 31 – August 3
I call this my masterclass, as I have been doing every year since 2010, and Jules Kliot has told me I can continue to do it for as long as I want to!:)
Some of the students have been coming to this workshop every year since 2010 and are becoming very proficient Irish Crochet lacemakers, producing beautiful work. Some have gone towards the Modern Irish Crochet, inspired by Mod and Duplet, while others, such as Jeff who entered the Poppy Project with IOLI last year,  have gone very fine. I am very proud of them all:)
Please contact if you are interested in attending this workshop.
We normally have a block booking at the Rose Garden Inn on Telegraph Ave, which is paradise!

      Hi Jaya Lee

      I saw on my gmail account that you are interested in workshops in the NYC area. I will add your name to this list. Should I add your name to the Boston list too?



  2. Posted by Ann R. on February 21, 2013 at 5:45 pm

    Please add me to your NYC list


  3. Posted by Cindy on February 22, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    Are you planning on being in the Atlanta, GA area in 2013? If so I am definitely interested in attending!


  4. Posted by Wanda Stoute on February 24, 2013 at 3:01 am

    Dear Maire, I am VERY INTERESTED in attending your classes on Clones lace when you come to the USA!!! Could you please, please teach in Lafayette Louisiana? My daughters & I will be the first to sign up! :)) Thank you soo much for all of you do!!! Sincerely, Wanda Stoute

      Hi Wanda

      I would love to go to Lafayette, Louisiana! I will email you privately about it and I will start a list!:)



  5. Dear Maire,

    Having read about your plans to conduct workshops in the US in 2013, I would be very interested in attending one on the East Coast; I live in the state of Maryland, but I am willing to travel.

    Thank you,

      Hi Nancy

      Do you mind if I put your name down on the NH and the Boston list? I hope that the
      NH one will happen. We have a good strong list, but we just need a venue!
      There are enough people for the Boston course too, but the proprietor of the Yarn
      Store is a bit nervous about it!



  6. Hi Maire.
    I’ve been following the blog, and it dons not look like many people have singed up for the NYC workshop…is there still a chance that a NYC workshop will happen? If not please put me on the NH or Boston list.
    Thanks Jaya Lee


  7. Maire:

    It would be fine if you put me down on the NH and Boston list; I could also travel South, if that would be more helpful. I am about midway on the East Coast, so I could go in either direction!

    Thank you, Nancy

    I am interested in the NY workshop.

    Hi this is Jeanne from NH…. I’ve been trying to get the word out up here so that we can create a course for Maire to teach.
    I have been very unsuccessful in getting any of the yarn shops to support this so I’m thinking that for a class to happen around here that it’s the students that we need to support Maire in getting here.
    Location: ????
    I was thinking of renting a class at a quilt store in Salem,NH
    This would be located right off RT 93 in Salem NH
    Salem NH is about an hour North of Boston.

    No location has been set yet….this is basically a grass roots effort in seeing if we can make this happen. Open to anything at this point!

    At this point we’re considering renting a room for Maire to teach at and figure out how we can

      Hello Jeanne,

      I am interested in attending a workshop of Maire’s in the New England region. I am currently on the list for the Boston area should a venue open up. If not, it’s possible I could drive to a New Hampshire location. I live in mid-coast Maine. How would I hear if you folks confirm a location? Somewhere I read that you were thinking of the end of June. Is that still a possible date?

      Thanks for any information you could post.


  10. Posted by Jeanne on March 15, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    Thinking of renting a class room in a quilt shop in Salem,NH.
    It is right off rt 93 and about 1 hour north of Boston.
    Around June 27th…..
    Sorry this sounds like such a start up operation but no yarn shops/orgaizations have wanted to sponsor this.
    Anybody want to help build on this?
    Ideally, it would be nice to have her teach some classes around here, do some demonstrations in the area and try to keep her very busy and still make sure she’s having a great time here!

    I would love to go to a workshop in NYC but will travel


    • Posted by cloneslace on May 9, 2013 at 11:14 pm

      Hi Carol

      I’m just about to post a new workshop in Bridgetown, Nova Scotia.
      I didn’t get any take up on a NYC workshop. I originally planned
      to do a workshop in NYC, but it didn’t happen. Would you like to
      come to Nova Scotia, Boston or Manchester NH? I can put your name
      down for one of them if you are interested.

    Hi Maire,
    When are you planning to be in Boston? Any chance of New Jersey, Metro NY area?
    By the way how much does the workshops cost?
    Thanks, Maeve


    • Posted by cloneslace on October 8, 2013 at 8:48 pm

      Hi Maeve
      I have no plans yet to be in Boston next year, but I will let you know as soon as I know!
      Do you live in the Upstate New York area? I’d love to come to NYC, but no invitations yet:)



  13. Posted by Maeve Vinci on October 13, 2013 at 2:31 am

    Hi Maire,
    Thanks for your reply. I live in Bergen County New Jersey which is about 6 miles from New York City and close to upstate NY. How in the past have the workshops been established?


    • Posted by cloneslace on October 13, 2013 at 7:37 pm

      Hi Maeve
      Thank you for your interest in having a workshop in New Jersey or New York City. I was looking at where Bergen County is, and you seem to be quite close to NYC. It takes somebody on the ground to organise a workshop. If you are part of a women’s or crochet group, that would be a big help, or if you knew a yarn shop that would be willing to have me teach in their store. I taught in 14th St in 2002 or 03. It was organised by the NYC branch of the CGOA. I taught in 2 different venues in NYC, and stayed with a woman in Brooklyn. You can email me privately to is you are interested in hosting me!
