Sr. Ann Kaufmann, CSJ, a former first-grade teacher, received a Masters of Religious Education and has been ministering as DRE in a small Hispanic Parish in Santa Rosa, NM, for more than four decades. During a pilgrimage to LePuy, France, where the Sisters of St. Joseph were founded in 1650, she observed bobbin lace making firsthand. Three months later she attended the first of three lace-making retreats in Concordia, KS, and continued a year of weekly lessons in Albuquerque. She has been self-taught since and delights in volunteering to show people the basics of lace making following the lessons in “Beginner’s Guide to Bobbin Lace” by Dye and Thunder and offers other patterns as well.
