Lighthouse Lacers

March 2017 Lighthouse Lacers Newsletter

Instead of a March meeting, six members of our group demonstrated various lacing techniques at the Kenosha Civil War Museum on March 11th during their Maker's Day Fair. Sylvia did a great job with teaching bobbin lace to people of all ages. Several young boys mastered the technique and had a fish to take with them. Fran and Therese also did bobbin lace. Jan demonstrated other uses of lace in her knitting projects. Cathy had samples of new ways to use tatting and Trish shared Irish crochet. Pat made a new brochure and provided name tags. We were just inside the front door, so our banner and table was seen either when people came in or left the museum. 

Our window display at the Northside library - Lacing a Rainbow - is a good example of the work of our group. The display will be coming down Friday, March 31st at 3:00 p.m. Let Rose Ann know if you are coming to help. 

Next meeting is April 8th at Festival Foods grocery store, 3207-80th Street, Kenosha, 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. When you enter, head to the back right corner. Steps or an elevator will get you to the second floor.
