  • If interested in the history of lace and in the area it is worth a stop. The museum is a small room with a table in the middle where community members can lace together. A lovely Lady walks you...

  • Wonderful! Many different types of lace, I didn't know there were so many different styles or ways to make lace. Docents were very nice, knowledgeable and helpful. Lots of different pieces of lace for sale. I bought lace Christmas Ornaments 🎄 ☺
  • This is a small but enthusiastically maintained museum of lace. They offer seasonal displays of vintage and antique lace of different styles as well as displaying examples of multiple types of lace made through various methods. They have a small shop with a selection of lace materials and an interesting collection of books on lace-making along with some lace pieces such as Christmas ornaments or lace-edged handkerchiefs or smocked baby dresses and so on. The staff is friendly and helpful and the environment is extremely welcoming. It's a small space, but definitely worth a visit if you enjoy any fiber arts. They also offer space for lace-making and other fiber-related craft meetings and classes. Check their schedule to see when the groups meet.
