Interview with Margaret Pankhurst of Alban Lacemakers

Hi everyone,

This afternoon we had an interview with Margaret Pankhurst of the Alban Lacemakers.

The Alban Lacemakers was formed in 1983 with the aim of keeping in contact with other lacemakers in the area.

They now have around 90 members and meet monthly (except August) at Marshalswick Community Centre. Visitors are always welcome at the meetings where they have a variety of speakers on lace-related and other topics.

They also hold weekend workshops where members can enjoy tuition from teachers expert in lace making and other crafts such as Beadwork and making Christmas gifts and decorations.

Members have also regularly demonstrated the craft at The Living Crafts Exhibition at Hatfield House, the Flower Festival at St Albans Cathedral, The Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace and school fairs and church flower festivals locally.
