June 21-25: Traditional Lace Making Lessons with St. Joseph Spiritual Ministries

Bobbin lace is a lace textile made by braiding and twisting lengths of thread, which are wound on bobbins to manage them. As the work progresses, the weaving is held in place with pins following a pattern or pricking pinned on a lace pillow. In 17th century Europe, lace making earned a better income than spinning, sewing, weaving, or other home-based textile arts.  Fortunately, there was a ready market for lace for the fashionably dressed. The Daughters of St. Joseph (the original name of the Sisters of St. Joseph) in LePuy, France in 1650, were not a cloistered community. Therefore they had to support themselves, and they did so by making lace. CLICK TITLE FOR DETAILS
