Nan Hedenrå

I think I+m rather known for my fleamarket finds and that I think that a lot of things need a good home like mine...
The other day I found alot of lacemaking supplies including a lot of patterns all marked to be designed by Nan Hedenrå. A search on google does not help, this woman is unknowen to cyberworld.



I haven´t been doing this for years but now I have some time and some of the patterns are not even pierced...
Still don´t know who Nan was. There is one man by the name of Hedenrå though but his wifes name was not Nan. I´m thinking of giving him a call.
There are differnt ways of doing laces, these patterns are of Vadstena type , in Skåne there I live laces are made on striped fabric and in Dalarna they are made on plaid fabric ...or the other way around.
In the boc there where a lot of "stars" or small tablecloths that I think I could use on blouses as ornaments so I might be at it again!

Your find is too cool! I've been thinking of doing some needle lace but with really thin wire instead of cotton thread...

Some of the patterns on the top picture looks like tatting patterns and not bobbin lace.
