  • The digital edition of PieceWork May/June 2012

    Lace—magical, often mysterious—is center stage once again in our fifth annual issue. Here are just a few of the intriguing people you’ll meet in this issue: Margarete Naumann, born in Germany in 1881, spent her life designing and promoting her remarkable hand-knotted lace that she named Margaretenspitze (Margarete’s lace); Sir Henry Borlase established a bobbin-lacemaking school for young girls in 1626 in Buckinghamshire, England; and World War I veteran Chester Ross Bentz, Sr. learned to tat at a Red Cross facility in Europe while awaiting transport back home after the Armistice.

    Included in this issue is Carolyn Wetzel's Motif to Tat for a Greeting Card

    This motif is a replication of a motif found on Chester Ross Bentz Jr.'s tatted bedspread, which his father made for him in World War I. Read the story and step-by-step instructions for tatting this motif in the May/June 2012 issue of PieceWork.

    This motif can be adhered to a greeting card, framed, or attached to a ready-made garment.
