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 £6.00.

We are trying to get back to business as normal as possible, so we will be holding a sales table. Don't forget to bring your purses, money raised goes to support our chosen charity.
Isobel will try to answer your crochet queries, get you started or just give general encouragement. If you are new to crochet but have a project / pattern in mind do bring it and we'll try and cover everything you need to do it.
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.
