Malmesbury Lace

A lace making class in the early 20th century organised by Lady Suffolk. Guess which one she is?

There are two lace making groups in Malmesbury who are always happy to welcome new members and there are other societies further afield. Janette will be pleased to give details to anyone who is interested.

The picture shows a lace making class in the early 20th century, organised by Lady Suffolk. Mrs Jones of the King's Arms is the important lady in the middle row. In the front row are Mrs Annie Goodfield nee Bishop (3rd from left) and the teacher Mrs Fisher (on the far right).

A lacemaking cd and two booklets are available to purchase from the Museum Shop.
