Lighthouse Lacers' display.

The month of March at the Kenosha Northside Library the Lighthouse Lacers are displaying  several items of different handmade lace. We have Hardanger, Bobbin, Needle and Tatting laces displayed. Marilee Rockley (aka Yarnplayer) has  a lot of her own designs on display. There are several pieces that where made for me by Jane Eborall( sorry I didn't have anything of mine to display this time.).  Tatting is very well represented! Enjoy the pictures I took on my iPhone. Click on pics so you can see the beautiful detail of the work.
The vest is Hardanger, the earrings/necklace set Bobbin lace.

The green necklace is Marilee's. The butterfly I believe to be Bobbin as is the piece in the frame.
Several more Marilee necklaces, a practice doll that has tatting on it and another Bobbin lace with some bobbins.
This wall hanging was made by Silvia (?). She Bobbin laced this. You really need to click on it an see just how beautiful it is!
And last we have Needle, Tatting and more Bobbin lace. See the butterfly and seahorses, guess who (Jane E.) made them!
I hope you enjoy the pictures. Janet, Trish,Jim(Janet's husband) and I had fun creating this display. If you are in the Kenosha area visit the Library at 1500 27th Street, Kenosha, Wis.
Next Saturday the 12th from 1-3 pm members of the Lacers will be demonstrating different techniques.
On another note I did finish my TIAS! It is on Jane's TIAS blog. It was one of 80 Jane Airlines to 'fly' in.

Hi Sue Anna, I believe you mean Hardanger, not Harbinger for the vest. It's a Danish form of needlework. What a lovely collection of work!

OOPS. Thanks Gina, I obvious don't do that kind of lace. The vest was made by the person who did the lace. These are some really talented ladies who can make beautiful and stunning things.

Wow! Wonderful job on the display! I'll see you there on the 12th, and I'll demo tatting. By the way, my last name is spelled "Rockley" :-)

Wow! What a lot of beautiful lacework is displayed! And fairly close to me - but still a little too far to visit :( Thanks for the peek.

Oh, that looks like a good time. I wish I lived nearby so I could be there on the 12th.

Shame you did not have any of your own work to display, but it was nice to see Janes.
Why are they called "Lighthouse Lacers" is there a lighthouse in the area?

Some day I would like to see a Lighthouse Lacers display in person. You're only a few hours away, so it is possible! Thanks for sharing!
