Bobbin lace making set

Bobbin lace making set
Creator: Beck, Anna
Date: between 1890 and 1920
Bobbin lace pillow, bobbins, and pattern. Bolster style pillow is tubular and stuffed with sawdust. A modern cloth cover has been added over the original ticking. A cardboard lace pattern, pricked with pinholes, is wrapped around the pillow's midsection and pinned in place. Steel straight pins protrude from the pillow's top through the cardboard pattern, holding in place a short piece of handmade linen lace (issuing from the back) and threads tied to 28 wooden bobbins (on the front). This set was passed down in the Beck family, who emigrated from Bohemia (Czechoslovakia) to the United States in 1894 and settled in Atwood, Kansas. The wooden bobbins belonged to Mary Dostal Beck. Her daughter, Anna Beck, made the pillow and taught her grandniece, Sonia Cloe Domsch, to make lace using this pattern. Sonia Domsch is a respected lace maker and the first Kansan to receive the National Endowment for the Arts' National Heritage Fellowship honoring outstanding traditional artists.
