Making bookmarks is a fun activity and they can make wonderful gifts! They are a quick project and are a good review of your lacemaking skills.
Options: Choose a pattern and make many bookmarks from the same pattern. They can be exactly the same or have a variety of colour schemes. Or find different patterns and have a variety of designs. Imagine having a bookmark for each of the favourite books in your personal lace library.
Some lacemakers make bookmarks to sell. It’s a way to promote lacemaking as a hobby or to support a charity. The Gazette welcomes you to share your experience. Our records will begin with number one and continue…
The Bookmark Club is open to all Gazette subscribers and others who are interested in this new club! Others will purchase the edition which highlights your bookmarks and details about your patterns and threads chosen. Also included is the certificate of achievement mailed to your address.
Based on the idea of a bookmark a month, certificates will be issued whenever you have reached 12 completed bookmarks and your set is published in the Gazette. So far, we have published bookmark projects from eight lacemakers. Congratulations on your achievement!
Email (or mail) a photo of your set of twelve bookmarks, plus send details of the pattern source(s) and threads used. Let’s continue to celebrate our unique art form!
