Bring a small portable table or bolster stand to work on.  One or two people per shift would be lovely.  Share the time with another lacemaker or invite a friend!  Enter at the east door by the parking lot, go down the stairs to the basement and sign in.  Get your ID badge and a complimentary drink & meal tickets.  You will then head to the second floor: The venue is air-conditioned!  You may want to bring a sweater…

Bring some display items for the time you are on duty.  A long table is set up for any ‘show and tell’.  This is a fun event, and quite informal. To sign up, email:
