The Grace Collection is a series of freestanding lace designs for the machine embroidery and heirloom sewing enthusiast. The designs have been digitized to create a vintage look for baby with heirloom lace “Bonnets and Booties” being the first designs released in the collection. The word “Lace” brings to our mind visions of grandeur,softness and luxury. From time immemorial, Lace has been a much desired and sought after commodity by all. Laces were never considered “incidental trimmings” but rather prized possessions. Time and effort went into creating these exquisite and luxurious treasures. The Grace Collection is a recreation of the Vintage Lace but without the time restraints.

The Grace Collection recreates the vintage laces made by hand. The open and airy look of the laces gives them an heirloom look. The soft and luscious feel of the threads definitely make one wonder about their origin, whether created by hand or machine. All the designs use the same daisy flower connected with small circlets. The edges have a single crochet style edge. With the fine needle work and delicate detail at best, the Grace Collection designs can be termed as Needle Laces. The Grace Collection (Part 1) Bonnets and Booties were designed with the vintage baby in mind. Garments and accessories made with these fine laces are sure to be treasured by any family as a true heirloom.

The designs and patterns are derived from a combined collaboration of two friends, Sadia Andrews and Carolyn Edwards, with a love for all things vintage and a desire to create heirlooms for future generations.
