The Lace Museum is a non-profit organization incorporated in 1981. It is one of two museums devoted solely to lace in the western part of the United States and showcases an extensive collection of lace and lace tools. The museum houses hundreds of tools, lace examples, books and other materials covering the history of lace, provides on-going lace making classes with experienced instructors, is staffed entirely by volunteers and is supported by donations, Friends of the Museum, the Lace Museum Guild and sales from the gift shop.
