    Hi Pam – Speaking of anniversaries, did you see PieceWork magazine’s call for their theme issue on lace and wedding textiles? I am thinking of the photo of you wearing wonderful knitted wedding dress and wishing more people could see that photo and hear your story about learning to knit in 4H and, well, all that led you to Pamela Penney Textile Arts.
    Here is the call:
    May/June 2017—LACE
    Our lovely lace issues are always popular, and our 10th annual issue rejoices in the magical properties of this ethereal textile. This time, we celebrate lace for that most special of occasions, the wedding. Bridal lace’s enchanting reign endures, be it handed down for generations or created exclusively for the wedding. Whether lace is used as a trim, an edging, an accent on an accessory or garment, or is lavishly layered and enveloping the wearer, we are captivated by its power. Send us your in-depth bridal lace stories and projects.
    Proposal deadline: August 19, 2016
