Building on our heritage...

The Debbie Bryan Heritage range will be growing in the New Year with a collection of Irish Linen Tablecloths & Napkins... embroidered with details inspired by our vintage lace patterns.

We are also planning a special collection with appliqued Nottingham Lace, and a collection of Irish Linen Scarves with lace pattern inspired embroidery, in traditional and hand dyed colours.

And that's not forgetting our tablecloth collection, which will be expanding too with new Nottingham Lace patterns... All coming in the New Year.

Light Night 2012

We're taking part in Light Night again on Friday 10th February 2012, showcasing the very best of UK lighting designers from 6pm with collections from Stella Corrall, Hannah Nunn, Laura Slater, Laura Olivia and Sarah Turner.

We're going to set up our Pop-Up Tea Room to keep everyone refreshed... serving tea, coffee and scrummy homemade cakes baked with local organic ingredients... so you can pause to admire our vintage draft lace drawings, Nottingham Lace samples, and lace inspired collections from Katie Almond, J.C. Middlebrook and Jason Holroyd to name just a few!

It promises to be a spectacular night! So pop it in your diary now!
