All About Alice

My name is Alice McQuade … founder of The Lace and Linens Co., a Canadian linen and lace specialist since 1969.

I’ve been fortunate to work with celebrities, homemakers, brides … and many cultural appreciators of fine fabrics. Whether it is special events – holiday dinners, corporate affairs, or simply a romantic setting … our collection of nice linens and lace will be a welcome addition to your affair.

I must confess my obsession with helping people create one-of-a-kind ambiance in their surroundings – something that elevates their uniqueness, where their family and guests experiences rich delicate sentiments, through fabric choices.


What your guests will experience is a piece of history – a connection to the Renaissance period of Catherine de Medici, or Point de Milan or Point d’ Espagne … consider your   forage into the French Revolution, as Marie Antoinette’s gowns of lace were the chosen  functions at the time.

Yes … I’m obsessed with these collections.


Only a few months ago, a 52 year old male walked in, and in 2 hours, had the drapings of an intimate room setting of Battenburg duvets, needlepoint window coverings and Tuscan style shams and cases … he still calls, and smirks at his good fortunes.

And he spent less than he would at any top bedding outlets in Toronto.


As you sample our collections, let me leave you with this.

I’m here to help you create a lasting soul lifting experience, you and your family and your guests will talk about – years to come. I promise.
