“Stitch by stitch, thread by thread, like the letters of the alphabet, the stitches spell out the stories lace has to tell”atc.e

“Learning to read lace is no more difficult than learning to read a book, and that’s something that even children under age four have learned to do. There are fewer ways to manipulate threads than there are letters of the alphabet, fewer rules of grammar.”

From the introduction of Guide to Lace and Linens by Elizabeth M. Kurella
