We’re looking ahead to CANADA 150 as we celebrate one hundred fifty years as a country in 2017. Canada Day is July 1, and fireworks will be in order across our great nation!
Ideas for lacemakers to participate are numerous; we have many resources available. Let’s all think about a personal lace project to mark this historic milestone. The Gazette will publish any photos of lace motifs that represent Canada: leaves, floral emblems, snowflakes, bookmarks, etc. Will we receive 150?
Let’s create a lace collage extraordinaire! All lacemakers are welcome to participate. Target “150” is the Summer edition, Volume 31:4, due to be mailed in June. Other 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! Click on the link below to view the updated Pattern file:
