Lace: a delicate openwork fabric, usually figured, of fine threads, used in handkerchiefs, table covers, etc., or worn as an ornament of dress.” That’s fine for Webster, but today we might think of it as: “a bunch of holes held together with thread of various sizes!” Lace is now used rarely and only by women and little girls on special dress up occasions such as weddings or First Communions and baptisms. There was a time when women, children, and even men wore lace every day and several months’ salary was needed to purchase enough lace for a lady’s cuffs and collar! And a room without lace on tables, chairs, sofas and anything else not moving was unthinkable. Today most people assume that all lace is pretty much the same. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Enjoy the opportunity to see many different kinds of lace and how they are made. Tim Nealeigh, an international award-winning lace maker, weaver, and textile artist, will explain and demonstrate various methods of lacemaking and the ways in which these laces were used. Finally you can find out about tatting, bobbin lace, netted or filet lace, carrickmacrosse, teneriffe lace, drawn work, pulled work, battenburg lace as well as knitted and crocheted laces.
