The Old Rowan Fiber Guild

The Old Rowan Fiber Guild meets Monday, June 20th, 6:30-9 p.m. at Center for Faith & the Arts, 207 W. Harrison St. This month, members of the Golden Bobbins will be presenting a program on making Needle Lace. Lace is fascinating and beautiful. And before modern machinery, it was a time consuming art. Lace was so complex to make and took so long to produce that it was sometimes more expensive than jewels to adorn your clothing. Wearing large quantities of lace was a way of flaunting your wealth.

The delicacy and intricacy of old hand made lace is amazing. While many people are familiar with crocheted, tatted, and knitted lace the oldest forms of lace making are needle lace and bobbin lace.

The Golden Bobbins will be sharing the history of needle lace and walking us through a simple project. Materials fee will be charged. TBD but not more than $5.00. They are still putting the kits together

The Golden Bobbins are a group of lace makers dedicated to all of the textile arts concerning lace. Our members make bobbin lace, knit, weave, tat, crochet, spin, quilt, embroider, etc. The Golden Bobbins are based in Charlotte and their Northern Branch meets monthly at the China Grove library.
