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.

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.

February Meeting

As usual, an enthusiastic group of us got together this month at the Franklin Township library for a Saturday of lacemaking, chatting, and sharing of patterns, books, and recently purchased treasures.  Lots of different types of lace was on display and many folks were starting new projects today.  Pat, our resident teacher and lacemaker extraordinaire, always brings many books and magazines for us to talk about and drool over.
