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 now updated to 950 names to possibly more than 1,200. We have many talented people who would be excited to learn there are 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 has a registry list of lacemakers across Canada. If you are interested in participating or have questions, contact the editor: clgeditor @ gmail.com
Give your name, town or city and province. You will receive a registration number, example (23-240). 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!
Example: Jane S. from Regina, SK (23-245) Lace types: bobbin, needle, tatting, crochet, knit. Information to appear on the list of provinces below: Saskatchewan: (6) Regina 1
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.
Some are newcomers to lacemaking, others are busy or have retired from active lacemaking. A wide range of resources are available and we are seeing a growing interest in this art form!
