Lace Study Groups

The Guild's members come from the area surrounding the Chesapeake Bay and beyond. We meet twice a year at our lace days, typically held in April and October. Various study groups meet regularly throughout the region to make and promote lace. Beginners and experienced lace makers alike are welcome to attend any study groups.
