Lacemaking in Fort Louisbourg, Canada

Step back in time to 1738 with a visit this summer to Fort Louisbourg, a national historic site on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. See a lacemaker demonstrating bobbin lace as it was done during this time in history! A building located on another street has displays dedicated to women and their many important contributions to everyday life at the fort.  Louisbourg image 1 JC

Lace Groups Across Canada

img_5753A brand new page shows a list of known lace groups in Canada. We are publishing the groups online as well as in the Summer edition of the Gazette. We hope there will be an increase in connections across Canada.

Some may be looking for a group. Others are independent and may be interested in visiting a group some day.

Personal emails are not included on the website. For contact with lace groups in Canada, see group websites, blogs, etc. or email the editor: clgeditor@gmail.com (add address to your contact list). Many thanks to all the people who assisted with this 2017 project!
