In a discussion how to attract younger generations to lace making Katelyn wrote: “teach design along with the lace making itself. No young person I know would be satisfied just knowing how to follow existing patterns, or recreating old lace. Teach what’s needed to modify, combine, and create new patterns, and we will.”

To illustrate modifying, I got inspired by an ancient piece of Torchon posted the other day by Nathalie. I isolated two fragments. Wouldn’t these motives be nice pendants? Replace at least the gimp with wire.

    But that was already invented by others. Nice work, but not innovative.

    Updated the article slightly in an attempt to make it clearer.
