Promoting the making, collecting and studying of all laces throughout the New England area

2021 Lace Challenge

This year’s Artist Trading Card (ATC) lace challenge will be a 2½” by 3½” card embellished with your handmade lace inspired by the theme “Spring".  You can interpret this in any way you choose!

Free Challenge Packs will be available upon request from our Vice President, Kate Moore. Please email Kate at to request a pack (one free per member). Each pack will include the materials you need to get started. The rest is up to you!

When you have completed your entry, please take a high resolution photograph and email the photo to Jill Hawkins at The deadline is June 1, 2021.

Since we will not be able to have our annual retreat this year, voting will be online (specific details to be provided later) and results will be announced at the NELG Annual Meeting on Saturday, June 19.

More detailed information is available on the Lace Challenge page.
