October Meeting

On a beautiful fall day, the Cranberry lacers gathered for lace making and good conversation.  A tatter joined us today and we were thrilled to see her beautiful creations!  So many different types of lace on our pillows.

July meeting

Our July 15th meeting was filled with friendship, lace, and food, as always.  Our members take turns bring desserts (and sometimes additional goodies) to share during our lace days.  Thank you to Cranberry Lacer Veronica for a wonderful spread this month!  Some of our members didn't make it, as they were anxiously packing up in preparation for the annual IOLI Convention, which began the very next day.  Looking forward to hearing the stories of those who attended!

Delicious spread today!

June meeting

Many of us had quite the eventful adventure in getting into the library today!  We have learned that when Franklin Township has their Household Hazardous Waste Day collection in the same municipal complex as the library, it can take up to 45 minutes just to get down the road and into the parking lot. 😩.  Add in the pouring rain this morning, and our June lace meeting will be one to remember.  Nevertheless, the ones who made it enjoyed the company and companionship of lace today.  Here's a sampling of what was on our pillows today.









We meet every third Saturday of the month for a day of lacing and conversation. (However, we have already decided that if Household Hazardous Waste Day collection occurs on a third Saturday next year,  we definitely need to switch dates!)  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.

April meeting

The Cranberry Lacers met today for our April 2017 monthly lace day at the Franklin Township Public Library in Somerset, NJ.  Lots of different lace was on our pillows:  Torchon, Milanese, tape lace, etc.  Motifs of all kinds and even the beginning of a scarf on a bolster pillow!










If you have received your Winter 2017 version of the IOLI Bulletin, you may have seen the lace on the cover by one of our members.
