Welcome to the magic and mystery of lace!
Our third annual issue focusing on lace is packed with beautiful projects and historical information on knitted, crocheted, bobbin, needle, and tatted lace. Did you know that lace made and broke national economies; women and men, many with more money than sense, died trying to possess the finest examples; smugglers devised creative and even ghoulish ways to avoid paying taxes and duties on it; and laws were enacted that attempted to restrict who could wear it? Those stories and more are in this issue.
Use our project instructions to create a stunning Herbert Niebling-inspired knitted-lace purse, elegant socks with lacy cuffs to knit, a tatted lace motif, a knitted Orenburg scarf, and an exquisite Dresden lace gift bag to embroider.
This issue is a lace lover's dream!
