Two weeks from yesterday we will be hosting one of the world’s experts in Irish Crochet Lace – Máire Treanor.  We are incredibly excited to meet her and to learn about the history and techniques that create this amazingly beautiful lace.

Máire’s book, Clones Lace:  The Story and Patterns of an Irish Crochet is now in its second printing.  You can also find examples and instruction in a series called The Story of Clones Lace currently running in Interweave Crochet!  Máire has not only spent years preserving samples and patterns that have developed since the nineteenth century, she is also a proponent of modern adaptations of Clones Lace.  In workshops around the world she has shared with us the joy of working with fine thread in the Clones style.

Wouldn’t you like to learn how to do this?  I know I do!  Máire will be here

Thursday, August 2nd
For a 3 hour workshop from 1-4pm

Be comfortable with basic crochet skills but don’t be afraid of the thread and small hook – YOU CAN DO IT!  Máire will teach you what you need to know and you will work on a project that you will finish or almost finish by the time you leave.  There is limited space so please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to sign up!
