Getting to Know L.A.C.E.

Monthly Meetings are held at the Clarendon Hills Public Library, located at 7 North Prospect Avenue, Clarendon Hills, Illinois in the southwest suburbs of Chicago.  Meetings take place on the 3rd Saturday of each month (excluding December) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the library's upstairs meeting room.  There is an elevator to get to the room.  (Do not send L.A.C.E. correspondence to the Clarendon Hills library.)

Educational classes follow the first half of our meeting.  A business session and lunch is first.  The second half is devoted to learning and hands-on practical programs and classes where we focus on lace making techniques.  Occasionally there is a lecture or a field trip to a special lace related exhibit.

Members come from all surrounding areas and backgrounds.  While some are experts and instructors, others are intermediate and beginning lacemakers whose interests range from the making of all varieties of hand made lace to lace history and collection.  As a member, you will be surrounded by people who are excited to meet you and will share with you their knowledge about all aspects of lace and lace making.  You will be provided with opportunities to learn and grow in your lace interests.  L.A.C.E. quarterly newsletters are provided to all members.

More than just the formal meetings, many members also meet on their own in smaller groups to visit and make lace together.  We also participate in separate events, workshops and demonstrations.  L.A.C.E. is a charter member of the International Old Lacers. Inc.

Show and Tell: 
Every meeting members bring items to share.  This might consist of New projects, completed projects, magazines and books that are of interest, awards, etc.  These are recognized shortly following the meeting.

Becoming a member is easy.  Download our membership form (PDF) which you can print and then just follow the instructions on the form.  Not sure you want to join yet?  Visit us by attending a meeting and program and let us welcome you.  Members are always more than happy to problem solve after meetings.  Lunch is not provided at the meetings, however, there are restaurants nearby.  Most members bring a sack lunch.
