Additional information 

In 2015, Limerick Museum and Archives ran a similar event that lead to the publication of a digital catalogue:

In 2018, Friends of Lace Limerick in collaboration with Limerick Museum ran a second similar event, co-located with a pop-up exhibition in a central location in Limerick city. A number of artefacts that were brought in were donated to the Museum, shining a light on the fact that many important pieces are hidden in drawers and attics and are in danger of being discarded.


All August Craft Month events are run independently by the event organisers. For questions regarding this event please contact the event organiser directly.
