Pioneer Acres of Alberta Museum

This past August I had the pleasure of joining the Wild Rose Lacemakers and demo for three days at Pioneer Acres. 

The lady in the first picture is spinning flax.  She was in the Quilt room and I enjoyed seeing the vintage quilts. 

The second picture is one of our guild members who has just let this young girl try her hand at bobbin lace.  She did such a good job that she got to keep the lace.







That little girl came back the next day and tried her hand at tatting and was able to make a few good flips.  I gave everyone who tried tatting a small tatted heart.

It was a wonderful weekend and I even met a few tatters, one woman brought her vintage book to show me.  I hope to go again next year.
