1 PM – 2 PM Program Rescue That Stash of Old Lace: presented by Elizabeth Kurella
What to do with that stash of old lace? Always a vexing problem for those with their own collection or an inheritance of grandmother’s old lace moldering in an attic or under a bed. Elizabeth will present tips on sorting through dirty old stashes of old lace from flea markets or attics, how to wash, rescue and store the good stuff. What to use, what to save, what to give or throw away. This is intended for ordinary household or antique middle-class fashion lace — not for museum quality lace.
2 PM Business Meeting and Door Prizes –
3 PM – 6 PM Special Class Session with Elizabeth Kurella $10 for the class

The Fall Lace Day was held at Ann’s beautiful lake house. Golden bobbins did a great job of hosting – thank you. The goody bags were very nice – especially the biscorni and regular pincushions and the needlecases! Anitra Stone gave a fascinating presentation on rescuing raptors.
