[Alamo Bobbin Lacers Making Lace]

Date: [1985-08-01..1985-08-04]
Creator: unknown
Description: Photograph of Sue Daeschner, of the Alamo Bobbin Lacers, making lace at the Texas Folklife Festival. She is sitting on the right in the foreground with a large round cushion on the table in front of her. The piece that she is working on is attached to the cushion. She is using several bobbins to make the design, about 25 or so, each loaded with purple string. They are roughly the size and shape of pencils. The string from each bobbin has already been worked into the lace, and she is crossing them over one another to carefully weave the intricate design. To the left of Daeschner, another woman, Col. Lois MacTaggart (US Army, Ret.), is also making bobbin lace. In the left foreground, some finished pieces on display are partially visible.
