Laci's boasts a huge inventory of lace making supplies from all over the world. They also have a museum with rotating exhibits on a wide variety of subjects from vintage lace, ribbons, nineteenth century foundation garments and dresses, and sewing tools. Unfortunately, the museum was not open
as they were in-between exhibits. That didn't matter...they had tons of good stuff there. Since I don't work with lace, my attention went to the vintage sewing items which were so fun to look at and admire.
They had a wonderful library of all kinds of pattern books and informational books on every subject related to needlework. Here's a look at the books I found.
You can visit Laci's for yourself at www.Lacis.com. Guess what? I posted this from my iPad! Feeling like I'm the Geek of the World!!!!
