Gateway - lace exhibition at Forge Mill Needle Museum - 2nd May to 2nd June 2015

Some ERTF members are also members of the '98 Lace Group, an international fellowship of lacemakers.  They are exhibiting at the Forge Mill Needle Museum and Bordesley Abbey Visitor Centre, Redditch for the month of May.

The museum itself is well worth a visit, and gives a fascinating insight into how such a tiny instrument (the needle) is made.  It is a complicated process which, although modernised and much safer nowadays, has not been changed over many centuries.
