This promotion is designed to encourage two generation double teams to take up lacemaking together: mother-daughter, grandma-granddaughter, aunt-niece,or even friends and neighbours – as long as they are a generation apart. Even the equipment can be shared, or each team member can get own kit.

Lacemaking kit for beginners consist of lacemaking pillow, lacemaking bobbins, 2 cover cloths, pins, lacemaking thread, and a carry bag. All tools are good quality, imported from Europe or made locally. The pillow and bobbins will last and accommodate many lacemaking projects.
Payment for the tools is required with registration.
If you decide not to pursue lacemaking further after completing the first course, you can return the kit, and if it is in good condition, I will refund 80% of the original cost. That way, you just paid $30.00 rental fee for the equipment. I believe in fair trade and sustainability and I feel this arrangement promotes responsible use of resources.
