Nottingham, lace making., Digital ID 1192110, New York Public LibraryJoin crafty librarian Jessica Pigza of the Rare Book Division and Crafternoon author Maura Madden for a free DIY day at the Library.  Our special guest will be the crochet and knit designer (and opera singer) Lisa Daehlin, who will share her knowledge of--and love for--knitted and crocheted lace designs (hairpin, broomstick, and Tunisian lace crochet, as well as yarn-over lace knitting). She will demonstrate some beginners’ techniques for making knitted and crocheted lace. We'll have a limited amount of supplies and tools to share and try out that day, but if you have the following please bring: DK or heavier weight yarn, a size G or H crochet hook, size 50 knitting needles, and a hairpin loom.  And as usual, we'll have a selection of books on lace from the Library's collection for browsing too.
