Exhibitions at Fenland Fair 2019

Lace Guild exhibition at the Fenland Fair

Making a Point with Lace

We are pleased to host at this year’s Fenland Fair the superb exhibition of Needle Lace created by the Lace Guild Museum. The exhibition examines the important role needlace has played in the development of lace and fashion from its origins in the 16th Century,to the present day and presents those developments in the form of exquisite examples of lace from the Lace Guild collection.

The collection was displayed earlier this year at the Forge Mill Needle Museum to great acclaim and will be returned to the Guilds collection after the Fenland Fair.

This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to view this unique exhibition before it is dispersed.
