Description
Lace—magical, often mysterious—is center stage once again in our fifth annual issue. Here are just a few of the intriguing people you’ll meet in this issue: Margarete Naumann, born in Germany in 1881, spent her life designing and promoting her remarkable hand-knotted lace that she named Margaretenspitze (Margarete’s lace); Sir Henry Borlase established a bobbin-lacemaking school for young girls in 1626 in Buckinghamshire, England; Tessie Leonard, who at eighty-nine still crochets by the window every day, remembers as a child making the clock embellishment in the water-lily motifs that her family worked in Clones Irish Crochet; and World War I veteran Chester Ross Bentz, Sr. learned to tat at a Red Cross facility in Europe while awaiting transport back home after the Armistice. You’ll also discover reticella (Italian for “little net”), one of the oldest forms of needle lace; Depression Lace, cross-stitch embroidery worked on a gingham ground fabric; and knitted lace. It’s all lace; it’s all beautiful— enjoy!
