On line lecture: Historical Lace Research, Fun & Frustration!

Carol McFadzean, UK    

Sunday, 23 July, 2023  16:30 CET

A talk featuring a variety of trails, both informative and humorous about trying to prove or disprove historical ‘facts or local folklore’.  The principles of trying to ‘stay on task’, ‘the serendipity moment’ and ‘reaching euphoria’ feature highly throughout the journey.  A look at the highs and lows of the historical lace researcher, what surprises are there in looking for the final links?

Carol McFadzean’s love of history and the Woodbury Salterton Lace Find were the catalyst for her research journey. As an author of 3 books and 1 book commission for a local Museum, she has seen her research cover many aspects and develop into a speaker both nationally and internationally on a variety of lace topics.   Carol is past AC, EC, President, and Bylaws Committee Chair of OIDFA.  She teaches lacemaking, always wishing to try a newly discovered lace or something out of the ordinary.
