Hi
Give the Buckinhamshire County Museum in Aylesbury a ring as they have lots of records regarding lace making, or I believe there is a lace museum in Onley (Bucks).
And no it's not any thing to do with Lace Wars (some one was bound to ask).

Mid 18th century groups re-enacting the '45

Hi I'm planning a big project in 2007 and am trying to get an idea of how many good 1745 groups there are in the UK. We are not talking about sword heroes here, so if you've got a bloody great claymore and a sheep skin over your back forget it. I'm talking about proper Jacobites with guns. In the sa...

As far as I know other than NFOE, Lace Wars and White Cockade no one else is really covering the mid 18th century. So why not make it 1730 - 1760.
Steve I now know where all Finns crayons go that he gets at resteraunts, I like to play with colours hmmmm, should I give you gun powder? :)
