“Of all the industries there is perhaps none so valuable as that of lace making for the cost of tools and working materials is so trifling that the profit is derived almost entirely from the manual labor expended upon it and the scope for artistic feeling and individuality in the taste of the worker is so great that a very high value can be obtained by the humblest operator.”

A History of Handmade Lace, Mrs. F. Nevill Jackson, 1900
