FOR OUR 40TH AGM , WE ARE MOUNTING A SPECIAL EXHIBITION OF LACE FANS
at the newly re-furbished Higgins Museum.
The exhibition (â€˜Fans â€“ iful Laceâ€™) will be open to the public for a month, from 2nd May.
The local Aragon Lace-makers will be making lace during the opening day, so we hope to feature English Lace in particular.
We hope to attract many visitors, introducing all of them to Lace on Fans.
Space permitting we aim to feature 40 items (to celebrate our 40 years).
