Lace Day 2013:  We should firm up a date for a Spring Lace Day if we are interested in having one this year. It looks as if May will be a busy month!  Note: Saturday, June 1 works for the calendar at St. Peter’s.

Some are involved in hosting the 40th anniversary of Embroiderers Association of Canada.  The dates are May 14 to 19, in Winnipeg at the U of M campus.  Here’s the link:

Please let us know of any other events that will conflict with potential dates for Lace Day.
