Fine Threads

Evelyn Gant

Is lace a fashion embellishment, an art, or a craft? I believe it is all three:  an artful expression of an ancient craft that brings elegance to fashion. Creating and teaching lacemaking, particularly bobbin and tatting, is my passion. I have been making and designing clothes for as long as I can remember. Over 50 years ago I started making formal wear for clients professionally. Most of my inspiration comes from the modest, regal fashions of the 1890's. My goals are designing lace and making custom-made gowns that rival the grandeur of that era.
