Ruskin Lace with Elizabeth Edmondson

It is with regret that I am cancelling the Ruskin lace workshops for 2020 – maybe later in the year we may be allowed back out to play! 
I feel it is the responsible action to take in line with all government guidelines.

Lace Fairs and Lace days etc

OIDFA Northern Contact Day
Saturday 7 March 2020, 10:30am - 4:00pm
All Saints Rainford Church Hall
Church Road, Rainford, WA11 8HE

(If travelling by car, easily accessed from M6, then M58/A580 and A570;
if travelling by public transport, train to St Helens and then bus or taxi – more details on request).

Those attending Congress in Estonia will be able to discuss our plans. There will also be an illustrated talk about OIDFA and a wonderful opportunity to see some of Margaret Tite’s antique lace collection! That should leave us with plenty of time to make lace – the hall is lovely and light and comfortable.

There is ample car parking both by the hall and (if overflow is needed) behind the church opposite – this will be clearly signposted, the access is between the church and the Golden Lion pub.

Please bring a packed lunch, other refreshments will be provided. Everyone is welcome, so please bring your friends.
Tickets £7
