Excerpt from Church Lace: Being Eight Ecclesiastical Patterns in Pillow-Lace

"And all the women that were wise-hearted, did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet and of fine linen."

This is the earliest record of Church needlework, and it puts before us a model that even after the thousands of years that have since passed by, we shall do well to copy. Most people agree that everything that is intrinsically good and beautiful should be used to make and furnish our Churches, and we use rich colour and fine linen even as did the Israelites. But they used more than that. We read that the spinning was done by "the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom" - "the children of Israel brought a willing offering unto the Lord" - they were "filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work". Head and heart and hands they used, and so must we if our workmanship is to reach the highest standard which alone is fit for use in God's House. "All manner of work" they utilized, and there is no craft of modern days which cannot be brought within the scope of Church work. It is to increase the possibilities for Church purposes of one particular craft that this little book is written. There follow here a few patterns of pillow-lace designed for use on "fair linen".
