LACIS MUSEUM of LACE & TEXTILES

Each of us has known moments of striking disclosure,  when the walls that limit our perceptions are pushed back  to reveal the undreamed of.
A sudden change of scale often brings about this enlargement of vision,  like the first glimpse of a galaxy through the telescope or  a drop of water 
brought into microscopic focus. The infinitesimal order of nature commands the same awe as its cosmic grandeur.

When, however, the perceived miracle is a human achievement, the awe is tempered with pride.
We learn something new about ourselves and our capabilities when, for example, we experience for the first time the revelation of lace.
