two great losses

For those who didn't catch it on Arachne - both Doris Southard and Irma Osterman died last week. They were essential to the promotion of bobbin and needle lace, respectively, in the USA, when few others even knew what it was here.

    Thanks for posting the news; I don't subscribe to Arachne any longer so would have missed it otherwise. The lacemaking world will be the poorer for having lost these two great lacemakers.
