The Lace Museum Gets a Facelift - February 8 A long-term goal for The Lace Museum is to raise enough funds to purchase a permanent home for our collection and activities. In the meantime, we have secured a new five year lease for our current location. Thanks to a generous donor we have fresh paint to enjoy during our stay. Please visit us after February 12th, when we re-open with a new exhibit and a new look.
Email Troubles - January 26 It has come to our attention that some of those who have joined our guild or have signed up for our emails through mail chimp are not getting their notices because the notices are going directly to their spam folders. Please put both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com in your contacts list so you will not miss out on any information.
