Description

Leading Clones Lace expert Maire Treanor will be joining us for the day at Yarnfolk Wool Festival. Come along and meet this amazing lady who will teach you and talk to you about Clones Lace. Below is a little snippit of how she describes the beginning of her passion...

"I first became interested in Clones Lace in 1987, when I met Mamo McDonald, who introduced me to Clones Lace, the forgotten lace of the town. On a beautiful spring day, Mamo brought me to visit some of the older crocheters who still crocheted Irish Crochet squares and edged hankies. Up among the hills of Fermanagh, about 5 minutes drive from Clones, we walked into Eileen Crudden’s kitchen. She was sitting edging linen hankies. When we walked in, she put away her work in jamjar, where she kept her handmade hook, with its wooden handle. This glimpse from the past made a lasting impression on me."

Maire will talk you about her experiences across the world and what she has learnt along the way. Whilst she endears you with her tales you will also learn how to create your own piece of Clones Lace.

Light refreshments are included in the price.
