Diss Lace Association
Diss Lace Association was set up in 1901 by a group of well connected women to provide an income for local, less fortunate women
They were enrolled and taught how to make Honiton bobbin lace. Materials were provided and they received payment for each piece. Miss Alice Braithwaite Savory was involved from the beginning until the association was closed in 1937.
Through a unique donation to Diss Museum by her great grand niece, we will tell the story of how Diss Lace won gold and silver medals and gained Royal patronage owing to its exquisite work.
2.45 for 3.00 pm start. There will be a very short AGM before the talk.
Friends of Diss Museum £3 and visitors £5. All welcome, no need to book.
