Lace Museum

The Lace Museum in Sunnyvale, CA needs financial help to keep its doors open. We're a museum that has collections of lace and that teaches the art of lace making to both children and adults. We're a nonprofit organization, open Tues. through Sat from 11 AM to 4 PM and we don't charge admission. Our only financial support is from visitor donations and the proceeds from a small gift shop.

We've had fewer visitors and fewer donations than expected this past summer, and so we find ourselves facing closure unless we can raise some funds. We're asking all those who love lace to help us stay open. Any dollars you can give will be grealy appreciated, and your donation is tax deductible. Checks can be addressed to the

On behalf of all the members of the Lace Musum Guild, I would like to thank you for your generosity.

Attention Tatters!

As a fund raiser for the Lace Museum, I will copy and bind the entire set of the Riego Books and include the Mrs. Mee & Austin and P.P. and make them available to tatters at cost plus a minimum donation of $12.50. Kindly send two checks. One check to me for the copying, binding and postage $20.30. And a second check made out to the Lace Museum for at least $12.50. Be as generous as you can and remember that this is tax-deductible.
