Lighthouse Lacers

January 2023 Lighthouse Lacers Newsletter

The December 2022 meeting was held for the last time at Ocenco. Eight members were present for the Christmas luncheon, payment of dues and gift exchange. We also presented Rose Ann’s husband with a gift card to Barnes & Nobles for his providing the space for our meetings and enabling us to share our lacing time with each other.

The next two meetings will be at the Southside public library conference room, 7979-38th Avenue, Kenosha, WI. Meetings will be from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

For the meeting on Jan 14th, please bring your ideas of future meetings.  Is there some technique that you want time to work on something started this past year or something new you want to share with the group?

Also, bring a piece of lace to share with a story.  Was it something special from a family member,  you found at an estate sale, your first piece of lace, etc.

Show and tell items are always welcome.
