On 20th September 2008 The Albans Lacemakers held their 25th Anniversary Party at the Community Centre Marshalswick. 
Some pictures of Elke Grossenbacher's lace pillows were taken from the screen during her talk, but they do not reproduce well. However, if you would like to see some of her collection you can follow the link

The 25th Anniversary cake was made and decorated by Patricia Bury and her daughter Rebecca (Beccy) Vosper.
The Brugge lace cloth was worked by Pauline Hayton especially for the occasion.

This unusual lace on Elke's skirt was designed by her to cover a red wine stain !
