Welcome to the East Yorkshire Lace Society

The Society was formed in 1989 from members of classes taught by Mrs Frances Bell. The Society has between 75 and 80 members, with the majority still attending class. It is not essential for members to attend a class and new members are always welcome. The Society is very pleased to have a small number of enthusiastic young lacemakers.

The Society is run by a Committee which comprises Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Class Representatives. Everyone who joins the Society is allocated to a class (whether they attend class or not!). Classes take it in turns to assist with the set up of the hall, and provide the afternoon refreshments at meetings.

The Christmas Party is an opportunity to raise funds for a nominated charity. On an annual rotation, each one of the classes is given the chance to nominate a Charity. The criteria is that the Charity must operate in, and benefit, the community of the East Riding of Yorkshire. Over the years a wide number of local charities have benefited, such as: Dove House Hospice, The Stroke Association, Support Dogs for the Disabled, Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Marie Curie Cancer, Parkinson's Society, RNLI, St Catherine's Hospice - Scarborough, Hornsea Inshore Rescue, and MacMillan Nurses.

The Society's Christmas Tree will be part of the BEVERLEY MINSTER CHRISTMAS TREE FESTICAL 2021: Friday 3rd December - Sunday 12th December. More information available on the Beverley Minster website
