Lacemaking in South Africa

Craft & Design

Look at how many pins there are in this in-progress piece of lace, all so close together! Jesse Breytenbach of Cape Town, South Africa, took these photos at Cape Lace Guild’s exhibition, in 2009.

    Fun lace. I’m used to seeing it done in much finer threads and a lot more bobbins and needles.
