Honiton lace sprig

Christine Hawken was a talented maker, teacher and researcher. Two books of her patterns and fillings were sold in her memory with all proceeds given to HospiceCare. When The Devon Lace Teachers dissolved in 2023 they gave Christine's collection to RAMM. This sprig is one of a number of lengths of lace trimmings made for a wedding veil. Various fillings are used: four pin, Italian, leadworks and lattice, no pin swing leadworks (or strawberry), snatch bars with half stitch plaits, cucumber, and half stitch plait hexagons and leadworks.
