Welcome to Risboro’ Lacemakers

We are a local group of lacemakers which usually meets one evening each month and often one Saturday as well,  to make lace and share our expertise as well as catching up with each others' news. 

We meet at Princes Risborough community centre,situated between the Parish church and the town's swimming pool.

New members are guaranteed a warm welcome.

Affiliation to the Lace Guild // a small library of reference books and lace patterns  // an Annual Lace Day // various workshops  // and quite a lot more...

It all started in 1992 when a group of ladies who had been attending local authority classes had an inkling of the writing on the wall and felt they could form a self help group.... see 'Our Meetings' page for more about Our History.
Today we are still sharing our love of the craft, forming friendship bonds and supporting each other in a variety of ways. We number  between 15 and 25 members whose ages range from 12 to 91 ..... Go to 'Our Meetings' for more about our group as it is today.

            A Chiltern Lacemaker
uiQetly she sits at peace,
Quietly she sits at peace,
Her nimble fingers still,
With steady gaze her eyes so blue,
Rest on distant undulating hill.
 
Memories of far off days
When little child at school,
Others ran and played
While she sat on a stool.
 
By light of candle and the globe,
With agile fingers cold,
Flew the bobbins and the thread
To make the lace of gold.
 
Her bobbins hang with bundled grace
On snow-white linen cloth.
Spider's web of good Bucks lace
For maiden sweet betroth..
 
Quietly near the cottage door
She sits in peace and calm.
Her lace is greatly in demand
For 'tis a space-age balm.
