In conjunction with the Treasured Threads: Nordic Lace exhibition, members of the Minnesota Lace Society will demonstrate a variety of types of lace making on one Saturday each month during the run of the exhibit (July 21, 2012 through Jan. 13, 2013). Join us to see first-hand how lace is made on any of the following dates between noon and 3 p.m. in the Lower Level Gallery: Saturdays July 21, Aug. 18, Sept. 22, Oct. 27, Nov. 10, Dec. 8, and Jan. 12. These activities are included with museum admission.
The Minnesota Lace Society was organized in 1977 in response to the growing popularity of fiber arts in general, with an interest focusing on lace. The goals of the Society are education, technical skill-building and the enjoyment of lace for members as well as for the public. For many years, Society members have demonstrated at the State Fair and at the Festival of Nations.
