Re-piecing figured lace bits for a client’s corseted torso, carefully by hand. Why did wearing of lace become something only worn for weddings or balls? That needs to change. 🙂
I‘m happy to announce that Elizabeth Emerson’s Lace Museum has successfully reached their funding goal so it’s a go! We wish her the best in this new endeavor. 🙂
I‘m one of the few people that has actually experienced the magic that is Elizabeth Emerson’s Lace Museum…it’s a priceless treasure that she is trying to make digitally available to the world. Her passion and knowledge she is sharing for free, but in order to do this…the initial setup requires funds. Are you a lover of lace and historical garments? You can be a part of something magically creative that promotes and shares the art form of Lace, a virtual museum that one can explore and learn at your own pace…it’s never been done before, but your help can make it happen. Every little bit helps, she is so close to reaching her goal…and then we can all enjoy The Lace Museum from the comfort of our own laptops!
Our good friend Elizabeth Emerson at Elizabeth Emerson Designs has launched a kickstarter campaign to establish an online lace museum. We feel this is a great idea so we’re boosting the signal. For more details, click HERE. We feel that this is a worthy project and we wish her success in this endeavor.
Life is short, use the lace! We encourage our customers to agree to this as well. Antique lace is a treasure that needs to be appreciated and gently taken care of, and in most cases…gowns were constructed so the lace could easily be removed for cleaning, then re-attached by hand. 🙂
