Membership is open to anyone interested in the art of lacemaking or in collecting or studying lace. Never tried lacemaking before? Several of our members are proficient teachers and are happy to teach new students.

Lacemaking at the Smithsonian

The Smithsonian Institutionâ™s American History Museum on The National Mall has re-opened! Behind-the-Scenes tours of laces in the Smithsonianâ™s collection are available on the fourth Thursday of every month (except November, December and on federal holidays) between 10:00 a.m. and noon. Samples of most of the major types of lace made from the 16th through the 19th centuries can be viewed, and paintings showing lace in fashion as well as the historical and economic factors influencing the lives of the lacemakers and the lace consumers will be discussed. The tours are free, but please call (202) 633-3826 to register, as each tour can accommodate a maximum of eight people.

From 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. on the fourth Thursday, volunteers from CRLG will demonstrate lacemaking in the public area of the American History Museum (located on the second floor, next to the large George Washington Statue). Please stop by or send your friends. If you are able to help out by demonstrating needle lace or being a substitute when needed, Karen Thompson would like to hear from you.
