The day was mild and so this, our first Lace Day of the year, was well attended. Instead of displaying examples of the other crafts they practise, our members took part in the Bookmark Challenge, all working the same pricking but with differing threads and stitches. Our suppliers were bobbin maker, Stuart Johnson, and Roseground and the speaker was Colin Fossey talking about Remap, our charity for this year. The draw was made for this year’s bursaries which included two places at the Sutton Bonington weekend lace course. We shared a faith lunch which, as usual, worked out marvellously well and was beautifully presented by our volunteer caterers.
