Living Knitted Lace Treasures
Larsen and Marguerite Shimmons
1st - April 1st 2009
These two ladies, who in very different
ways, brought recognition and respect to lace knitting,
recognizing it as an art form are deservedly celebrated and honored in
this exhibit researched
and organized by Lisa Neidinger, a committed supporter of lace knitting
Gracie remains a gatherer of knitted lace enthusiasts and all related
resources, never missing an
occasion to promote and demonstrate at fairs and conferences serving as
a vital resource for lace knitters.
Marguerite remains the consummate lace knitter with fingers that never
stop and a
soul devoted to beautiful lace as can be witnessed by a home filled
with her accomplishments.
Sharing is her forte as she spent many hours promoting this art form at
The National Needlework Association trade show early this year.
She has generously donated a substantial collection of her works to
LMLT which can be viewed at http://lacismuseum.org/new_acquisitions.html.
