New lapel (or scarf) pins “Lace Canada Dentelles” are available, just in time to help celebrate Canada’s 150th year as a country! Wear a pin to Lace in Public Day in 2017.
The design is a single maple leaf measuring 7/8 inch square (2.2 cm x 2.2 cm). The colour is a bright red, the same colour as the Canadian flag, with gold colour details. It attaches with a pinch back butterfly closure.
The gold openwork design is a “ring filling” found in Bruges bobbin lace, based on the original CLG logo by Kris Duwyn, designer and Irma Andries, lacemaker. [CLG Spring 1992]
