Fayetteville Public Library

Meeting: The Willard and Pat Walker Community Room

Dogwood Lace Guild members bring the history and beauty of lacemaking to life with this presentation and hands-on demonstration.

Dogwood Lace Guild members will share a presentation on the history of lace and lacemaking. After the presentation, members will offer hands-on demonstrations of various lacemaking techniques and tools of the trade. They will be available to field questions about this beautiful craft and fiber art form.

Presenters include Peggy Bowen (bobbin lace), Glenda Lee (tatting), Joan Thomas (Oya/needle laces) and Jean Mitchell (bobbin/needle lace).

Peggy Bowen has been making bobbin lace for about 35 years. To Peggy making bobbin lace is a meditation, like making music can be, but quieter, and when you finish you have something pretty to show for your time! Peggy is a member of IOLI, International Organization of Lace Inc. and is the current President of The Dogwood Lace Guild. 

Glenda Lee is a true Arkansas native. With her heritage in Northwest Arkansas going back multiple generations, she has had the good fortune to be grounded in traditional crafts throughout her life. Glenda learned to crochet at 6 and knit at 12 from her mother and grandmothers. She discovered tatting at 16 and found her true fiber love. Her love of fiber crafts is inspired by learning how the parts make the whole. 

Lacer Joan Thomas has been tatting for over 25 years. It was not until moving to Oklahoma in 2014 did she expand her love of lacemaking to other forms like bobbin and needle lace. Joan is an active member of three IOLI, International Organization of Lace Inc., guilds: The Dogwood Lace Guild (Springdale AR), The Lacemakers Guild of Oklahoma (Bartlesville OK), and The Show Me Lacemakers (Branson MO), and is also a proofreader for the IOLI’s quarterly Bulletin magazine.

The Dogwood Lace Guild meets at the Shiloh Meeting Hall at 10:00am on the first Saturday of the month. To confirm the meeting time, you can call the Shiloh Museum or find The Dogwood Lace Guild on Facebook.
