SUMMARY: This title ceased publication after only a year and a half due to the poor health of the editor, Sara Hadley. I only have the one issue at this point. She covered other types of lace making - whether that included tatting is a mystery until I can find more of the issues. Eighteen issues is a very short life for a magazine, but this is the earliest example of a magazine devoted solely to lace making that I've run across, and it predates the big renaissance in lace making of the 1910-1920's by a decade.
