The Piedmont Lace Guild of Virginia is currently exhibiting lace at Lord Fairfax Community College in Warrenton. The display case in the college lobby contains bobbin lace and tatted lace handmade by members of the guild, as well as examples of various types of lace from the private collections of members. The community is invited to stop by and see the display.
The Piedmont Lace Guild will also participate in the upcoming First Friday in Warrenton on Friday, Oct. 4. The guild booth will be decorated in a Halloween theme, “Arsenic and Old Lace.”
The Piedmont Lace Guild of Virginia was established in 2006 to promote and preserve the knowledge and appreciation of the fine art of lacemaking. The guild meets monthly at Remington United Methodist Church in Remington, and membership is open to anyone with a sincere interest in lace and lacemaking in all its forms. Students and collectors of costume and textiles and historical reenactors are also welcome.
