Lace Demonstration

Some of our members 

will be demonstrating lace making 

10am to 12noon

At the Haan Museum

during their celebration of the 115th anniversary of the St. Louis World's Fair

Saturday, March 23, 2019
Join us in celebrating the 115th anniversary of the St. Louis World’s Fair. Why celebrate the Fair in Lafayette, Indiana? Because the Haan Museum building served as the Connecticut Building at the 1904 World’s Fair. Many parts, including the entire front entry and much of the interior woodwork, came from the 1760 Hubbard-Slater mansion in Norwich, CT. Mike Truax, President of the St. Louis World’s Fair Society, will be here during the event to help us celebrate.
