Canada Connections!

We have many wonderful lace groups in Canada and are publishing the groups online as well as in 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 in this listing. For contact with lace groups in Canada, see group websites, blogs, etc. or email the editor: (add the email to your contact list). Many thanks to all the people who assisted with this 2017 project!

Connections are important. Here is an interesting article published recently by newspapers in Ontario. Other articles about lace in Canada can be posted in the space below, please let us know!


We are including our current Advertisers who support the Gazette. Connect with their websites.
