Colonial Lacemakers Exhibit
The fith annual lace exhibit of the Colonial Lacemakers will take place throughout the month of October at the Williamsburg Library, 515 Scotland Street. From historical laces to contemporary designs based on doodles to jewelry incorporating beads, thread has never looked this good. On Oct. 20 join the lacemakers, in Schell Room, to learn some of the secrets of this art during hands-on demonstrations from 2 – 4 p.m. There will also be lace pillows for visitors to make a lace heart or fish for those with a little more time. We will have how-to hand-outs for you, bookmarks, and stickers, so come learn about turning thread into the fabric we call lace.
