I first began making lace when we moved to Cheshire over 30 years ago. Those of
you who have heard our ‘talk’ will know that the business began when other members
of the lace class I attended asked me to make them the lace accessories that I had
made for myself. The business grew as I developed and expanded the range of items
that I made and we acquired a small range of lace threads. The lace day invitations
began to arrive and we soon expanded our stock. The natural follow on was to open
a small shop for lacemakers, where I taught lace and needlework for a few years
David then decided to join me in the business full time and we moved into a unit
at a local craft centre, dealing with customers 7 days a week. Shortly after, SMP
Lace then asked if we would like to take over their pillow making business which
we did, and as we also increased the number of lace days, we were kept very busy!
The pillow making took up more and more time so we left the craft centre and have
recently moved into a large workshop in the Cheshire countryside. David spends four
days a week hand making all our pillows and I then cover and finish each one by hand.
We still very much enjoy visiting lace groups all over the country - see our diary
page for details of forthcoming lace day commitments.
