After two years' hiatus, our favorite Irish Crochet instructor, Máire Treanor, shall be returning to Lacis in Spring of 2022! We are very pleased to be hosting Máire's ever-popular four-day intensive Clones Lace workshop once more.
     Interested in taking advantage of this special opportunity? Download the registration form and let us know soon, as this class always fills up quickly. Only a non-refundable $50 deposit* is required to hold your spot. And of course, Maire's returning students—as well as current LMLT members—will enjoy a 10% discount.

Big news, everyone: classes have resumed at Lacis!
     Take a look at the workshops we've hosted recently and are offering for this year—from ribbonwork to lace-making and embroidery, our amazing students and textile teachers have brought their creative and convivial energy back into our Museum. We love to see it and are so excited for these upcoming events!

We thank those of you who attended our opening reception event for The Bird in the Textile Arts. This beautiful exhibit, located on the ground floor in our south gallery, is now open to the public by appointment—and for Museum Members, of course, admission is free. Call us to book your tour.
     After a long pandemic hiatus, workshops will soon resume once more at Lacis. We have always deeply appreciated the creative and congenial energy of our students, and will be happy to welcome back our wonderful textile instructors. We're also conscientiously taking every precaution, however, to ensure the safety of our community. Do take a look at our class offerings, and contact us if you're interested or have any questions.

Hello, Lacis friends! Welcome to our new website! We hope it works well for you. As with all new projects in their beta testing stages, we expect there might be some growing pains—so thank you in advance for your patience. And thank you for visiting!

After a long winter of curbside transactions and in-person shopping by appointment, our doors are open again at last! Between plans for an elevator installation, receiving and processing generous and fascinating textile donations, and running our thriving Etsy shop, we've been keeping busy.
      We're also happy to announce that tours of the exhibit Worn to Dance: 1920s Fashion & Beading have recommenced. Read last month's Newsletter for all the latest details.
