Welcome to the Itchen Valley Lacemakers web site.
We are a friendly, self-help group. At each meeting there is usually someone who might know something about solving a problem with a project. We are not just lace though. Members bring a variety of craft projects to work on, you can often see needlelace, tatting, embroidery, hardanger, cross stitch, cards, knitting, crochet, beading and more!
To attend a meeting as a Visitor will cost £7.50, although your first visit, while you try us out, would be free.

Although we have had to cancel the Christmas themed workshops we have not cancelled the festivities. We'll have mincepies and/or cake, you bring the gaudy jewellery and outrageous jumpers! Don't forget there will be another raffle, this time to raise funds for our charity for 2022, Southampton Hospitals Charity.
Some of our members are still vulnerable or nervous we would respectfully ask that anyone with Covid-like symptoms does not attend. Thank you.
Made lace before but in need of encouragement or a refresher?
Our members are very happy to help get you re-started and give you reassurance, tips and tricks. Please use the Contact Form to let us know you are interested.
If you wish to learn bobbin lacemaking from scratch please contact us before attending so we can make sure that someone who is comfortable with both teaching AND the reduced social distancing required to effectively do so is going to be avaiable.
