CANADA 150 is a celebration of one hundred fifty years as a country in 2017. Canada Day was July 1 with fireworks in many locations, and people continue to mark this milestone year in many different ways across the country.
Ideas for lacemakers to participate are numerous; we have many resources available. A personal lace project to mark this historic milestone is a good way to celebrate. The Gazette will publish any photos of lace motifs that represent Canada: leaves, floral emblems, snowflakes, bookmarks, etc.
Target “150” was the Summer edition, Volume 31:4, mailed in June. Other projects are still underway and more photos will be included in Fall and Winter editions.
If you are looking for ideas, you may have some patterns in lace books on your shelves. Check local libraries and suppliers. Make up your own pattern!
Plus, the Gazette Archives has a listing of many patterns, 535+ submitted over the years. If you have saved your copies of the Gazette, check out the list. You may find something in your own archives that sparks a creative idea! Click on the link below to view the updated Pattern file:
