The Fourteenth Year

Beginning Bobbin Lace Workshop - Province of the Mists
February 23, 1980 (AS XIV)

From The Page (February, 1980):

A one-day workshop will be held Saturday, 23 February, at Ella de la Vergne's (address omitted). The workshop will run from 10 am to 6 pm, to be followed by a potluck dinner. Bring a 22 inch circle of medium-heavy, firmly woven, solid-colored cloth with a drawstring around the edge, two dozen lace bobbins, bobbin substitutes (such as laquered, large, two-headed nails), or money to buy them (bobbins cost from $1.25 / dozen to several dollars each), a ball of Knit-Cro-Sheen crochet thread in any color, and a bag lunch.

The program will include construction of a cookie pillow, introduction to the basic stitches and grounds, pattern reading, a visit to Someplace to look at lace, threads, bobbins, and patterns, and (maybe) a demonstration by Webby, an expert lacemaker. The instructor hopes to have everyone start work on a pattern of their own choice by the end of the afternoon.

If you plan to attend, please call Ella at (phone omitted) in the evening or on Sunday. If you come without advance notice, please also bring a 10 inch circle or square of plywood or masonite, two 16 inch circles of medium weight muslin, and two pounds of sawdust, straw, or well-dried pine needles.


Description of this event (if any), taken from The Page, or from memory of at least one person who attended the event.
