A 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: email@example.com (add address to your contact list). Many thanks to all the people who assisted with this 2017 project!
