Lace is a decorative fabric in which the design is formed by open spaces. You might say that it’s a pattern of holes held together by thread. If you begin with a piece of fabric and create holes in it, you will be creating a “lacy” fabric, but not a true lace by our definition
True Lace begins with a strand of fiber.
We are a group drawn together by our love of lace. While most of us are bobbin lace makers, we also create needle lace, tatted lace, knitted and crocheted lace. At our meetings we encourage, inspire and help one another to learn more about lace and how to make it.
The Metropolitan Chapter meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month except for July, August, and December. The meetings are held at members’ homes. Most members are from Bergen County, NJ, Rockland County, NY and New York City. We are the only chartered chapter of the International Organization of Lace, Inc. (IOLI) in the metropolitan New York area.
