Product description

From Library Journal

Mary Schiffmann (1908-96) was an indefatigable collector of lace patterns for knitting. Such was her enthusiasm that she once purchased plastic doilies pressed from knitted lace originals and managed to decipher instructions for re-creating the originals in cotton thread. She was also a cofounder of the Lacy Knitters, a national group working to promote the preservation and cataloging of old knitted lace patterns. This book offers both her reminiscences on her work and a collection of her patterns and teaching notes. Patterns include a photograph of each item plus written and charted directions. Highly recommended for textile collections and public libraries.
