The Lace Collection

There is a much admired and interesting collection of hand made and machine made lace. Particular pride is taken in the hand made lace kindly donated or loaned to us by Mrs Hayes of Pershore. There are examples of her work to include Brugge Flower Lace, Belgian Flanders lace, Torchon lace and others. One piece of lace is under a magnifying glass for closer inspection of the intricacies of lace making. There is also a booklet with the history of lace making to peruse. Below the display case are drawers with many other items of lace and examples of crochet and embroidery work for further inspection.
