On Saturday 21st September Abbey Meadow Lacemakers (AML) held their annual Lacemakers day. Over 60 lacemakers from around Oxfordshire met together to make lace and celebrate their 25th anniversary.
In these days of mass production, there are still practitioners of skilled crafts and people who want to learn them.
The founder members, Gaby Lloyd and Elsie Wood cut the anniversary cake.
Abbey Meadow Lacemakers practice all needlecrafts as well as lacemaking and are always happy to see new members. They meet monthly on every 3rd Tuesday at Preston Road Community Centre. Details of their meetings and contact details can be found at www.abbeymeadowlacemakers.co.uk .
