Still image from Nottingham Lace

Part of "Life on the Edge" series. Once the Lace Market of Nottingham pounded to the heavy metal beat of its handmade lace-making machines, but no more. Cluny Lace is the last of its kind, still making world beautiful lace with its old jacquard machines. Owned and run by a tightly-knit family, Cluny Lace faces a dilemma: can the towns of the United Kingdom's East Midlands find a place for the skills that made them rich? Does the lace which Margaret Thatcher once lauded as 'truly British' now belong on museum shelves or designer dresses?
