Recently, while watching a travel show, I saw a lady making needle lace in Burano, Italy. I had seen pictures of this lace before, but I didn't know what it was called or how it was made. Well, of course because I’m a crafter, curiosity got the best of me. I logged on to MCPL'S online catalog and discovered that there were several nonfiction books about the history of lace and instructions on making several different kinds.
I also found several fiction books involving lace making.
And with all of the hobbies that I like to do, the resources available through MCPL makes it easy to learn a new craft. In the DIY section of our Online Resources, you can find a wide selection of craft ideas.
