Piecework May | June 2015 Preview

PW-MayJune2015-CoverTo make any type of lace, one has to make connections. It all comes down to this—connecting threads, connecting people, connecting the past to the present.

This May/June 2015 annual Lace Issue of PieceWork pays homage to those connections with two personal family stories that showcase multigenerational lace connections. And there’s so much more, including 6 lace projects.

Welcome to PieceWork’s latest adventure with magical, mysterious, and powerful lace!
