Lace CANADA Dentelles
Canadian Lacemakers – Coast to Coast
Imagine having someone in your neighbourhood or within driving distance who can make lace and never knowing about them!
Have you ever wondered how many lacemakers there are in Canada? The latest estimate is 850 to 1,000. We have many talented people who would be excited to learn there are many others who are able to make lace. We are a unique group of people. Please join us and participate in this Canada wide search!
CLG is developing a registry list of lacemakers across Canada. If you are interested in participating or have questions, contact the editor: firstname.lastname@example.org (Note: add the email to your contact list).
Give your name, town or city and province. You will receive a registration number, example (22-240). The first number is the year, followed by your number. Personal info remains confidential. A subscription is welcome but is not necessary to be included as a lacemaker in Canada. If you are interested in seeing a sample edition, email the editor!
State the type of lace you make, or know how to make: bobbin, needle, tatting, crochet, knit, etc. You must submit your own information. The results will be updated regularly. The number of lacemakers by province/ territory will continue to grow as the information is collected.
See √ invitation links/ checklist of skills below! Example: Jane S. Regina, SK (22-245) Lace types: bobbin, needle, tatting, crochet, knit. Information to appear on the list of provinces below: Saskatchewan: (6) Regina 1

Moving? If you have changed location, contact the editor to update your listing.
New participants receive a Registry number by email after their information has been received. If you need confirmation of your registry, contact our office. clgeditor @ gmail.com (Add the email to your contact list).
Official certificates are sent out by email. If you need a copy mailed to you, please send a request.
Save your registry certificate in a file on your computer. It can be printed in different sizes and framed! One idea is to place a gold star on the Canada map for your location. Some printer companies have special offers for images on mugs or T shirts, etc. Note: Certificates are available in both official languages, French or English. Newcomers are welcome!
