Teneriffe Lace Meeting for the Appaloosa Lace guild was held on Jan 14, 2012 at Fairview Good Samaritan. The program taught by Susan Shea will include exploring the history of Teneriffe lace, looking at samples of lace brought from Kathleen Warnick’s lace collection which is currently at the Leila Old Historic Costume Collection at the University of Idaho, and making a medallion using Kathleen’s instructional booklet. Kathleen taught lace making classes in the 1980’s and 90’s for the University of Idaho Extension Service. Fortunately, she has preserved those documents, so we will use them to make our own creation.
