Unusual find today whilst sorting out some old magazines, Lace magazine 1983 (bobbin lace)
This lace was shown at Midland Bank, High Street, Bedford and was designed and made by M Rutgers.
As it took her over 180 hours to make the lace excluding time spent on design and patterning, I will not be attempting to recreate it.
( I started with midland bank in 1978, left HSBC last year)
