Jeri Ames recommends lace articles in Winter 2018 issue of PieceWork

November 13, 2018 10:02 PM | Sharon Sacco (Administrator)

This 26th volume, number 5 (Winter 2018) PieceWork has Point d Gaze on cover.  It features needlework articles from old books and publications.  A lot of lacemakers enjoy old quotes.

It has an interesting article on page 30 - The Secret in the Old Lace - about Nancy Drew and her detective adventures in Bruges, followed by instructions for two small needlelace hearts just right size to applique on clothing.  My library is sufficiently open-minded that I have a 1980 edition this Nancy Drew book.

This PieceWork also has a knitting pattern on page 40 for a lacy fichu that might have been made in Louisa May Alcott's era, a wonderful lacy knit scarf on page 66, and Russian-style knitted lacy mitts on page 68.  Plus, articles about women's needlework magazines of the late 19th-to-early 20th centuries have been researched in-depth and are explained.  Anyone who collects Needlecraft, Priscilla, or Fancy Needlework magazines will find these articles of interest.
