About

Knit & Crochet ~ Now & Then

My grandmothers had strong influence upon me. Both emigrated to the U.S. in the 1890’s.

I learned "needlework" at their knees. Their household linens were embellished with handmade crocheted lace. All the bed linen, bath linen, kitchen linen, dining linen had handmade lace hems. Petticoats, nightgowns, pinafores, collars and cuffs were also lace trimmed. Though a nightgown or pillowcase may have been created from a reused flour or seed sack, it was elevated for my Nonnas homes by having a lace edge.

Often I am fortunate enough to find snippets of these treasures at estate sales, household sales and thrift shops. Because of my respect for the history and my desire to preserve it, I rescue these items.

In my shop you’ll find items that include this heirloom lace that was handmade in the Victorian Age up to the end of WWll. I re-imagine their exquisite needlework to create heirloom wedding and bridal accessories.

It's genetic: I love needlework. Want something knitted up exclusively for you? press the CONTACT SELLER button on my etsy front page to discuss your request.

Reused vintage lace may have a microscopic flaw. It's part of the beauty of "vintage". This is why it is so endearing♥
