September meeting

After a rainy week, the Cranberry Lacers were very glad to gather in lacemaking and friendship on this Saturday at the Franklin Township public library.  Pat and Beth shared stories of their lace adventures this August in Europe, attending the OIDFA Congress in the Netherlands and then the World Lace Event Brugge in Belgium.  Pat brought lots of show and tell by way of books and patterns!



Today, Mary was busy tatting and has found herself quite engaged in tatting lately.




As per usual, Beth was working on beautiful Binche, but today brought a piece that involved a bit of color - quite unusual!




Other pieces on our pillows today:







As always, Pat is an incredibly patient and kind teacher, always helpful, as she is here with Veronica.



We meet every third Saturday of the month for a day of lacing and conversation. We are a group of friendly lacemakers with a range of experience - we are lucky enough to have a professional instructor to teach the beginners and work with the experienced.  Anyone is welcome to join us!  The room we meet in at the library is large with lots of light.  Feel free to email us at cranberrylacers@gmail.com for more information.Cranberry Lacers has been a chartered chapter group of IOLI for 25 years.

July meeting

An enjoyable time was had by all today, here on the third Saturday of July, as the Cranberry Lacers gathered for our monthly day of lace.  As always great conversation and lacemaking were a part of our hours together.  Such different types of lace adorn our pillows!

June Meeting

Cranberry Lacers were in for a special treat today at our June meeting at the Franklin Township library as Pat, our wonderful teacher, had prepared an excellent lesson about different types of starts and getting us to think about analyzing different patterns from many different sources.  The seven attendant lacers/students were so appreciative of the effort she went to in pulling together all the materials for us and for imparting all her wisdom and knowledge.  We tried out three different starts and looked at different patterns and discussed ways to tackle them.  Thank you so much, Pat!

Rosa came wearing her BEAUTIFUL top adorned with the lace that we have seen her working on at previous meetings.  What a stunning way to show off our art/craft!

A little bit of other lace on our pillows, but truthfully, Pat's lesson really did enthrall us all.

Ten of the Cranberry Lacers enjoyed a wonderful day of lacemaking today, with Torchon, Binche, Tonder, and tape lace just some of the kinds on our pillows today.  As always, we love chatting and sharing the various books and magazines and lace related goodies that members brought.  Here is what our pillows had today:

March meeting

Eight lacemakers gathered today on St. Patrick's today (although it seems like only one person remembered to wear green!) for a day of lacemaking, learning, and companionship.  As always, many different lace types were on our pillow.  We thanked Pat, our wonderful teacher, for bringing today's wonderful spread, including green (!) grapes 😄.  Rosa brought her beautiful completed bobbin lace scarf.  And, we send well wishes to our fearless leader and group president, Mary, who is dealing with a broken wrist.
