Honiton lace sampler (lace)


In 2014 The Devon Lace Teachers published this Honiton lace sampler in '121 Hontion Lace Fillings'. Christine Hawken was a talented maker, teacher and researcher. Two books of her patterns and fillings were sold in her memory with all proceeds given to HospiceCare. When The Devon Lace Teachers dissolved in 2023 they gave Christine's collection to RAMM.

Top to bottom fillings are:
Line 1 - Blossom & Leadworks with a hole, Spotted Net, Diamond & Square Leadworks;
Line 2 - Leadworks & Half Stitch Blocks, Open Two Pin, Toad IN the Hole V6;
Line 3 - Double Blossom, Double Blossom with Leadworks;
Line 4 - Trolly Net, Three Pin Whole Stitch Block & Pin, Four Pin with Enclosed Circle;
Line 5 - Sunspot, Linked Cartwheels or Star with Leadworks.
