The Grace Collection is a series of freestanding lace designs for the machine embroidery and heirloom sewing enthusiast. “Bonnets and Booties” heirloom lace was the first collection digitized to create a vintage look for Baby. “Sentimental Laces” is the second collection which has been designed to commemorate those sentimental moments in our lives. These moments are from birth through childhood to valentine sweetheart, wedding and new home.

The Grace Collections are machine made laces which compete with hand made laces in all aspects. The laces have a light and airy look and feel to them, yet they are sturdy enough to be passed on from generation to generation. Sentimental Laces is a versatile collection of laces that can be used not just for sentimental occasions but also on anything heirloom as well as on modern wearable and home décor. The collection has a total of seventeen designs. The designs are stitched on water soluble stabilizer and then attached to create larger lace trims, etc. or they can be attached directly to the fabric. The options are provided.

The collection of designs also comes with instructions for creating three projects, Pillowcase doll, Spa gift set and a Shamrock cushion cover.

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.

Spa Gift set

Shamrock pillow

Pillowcase Doll

The booties can be found in the Grace 1 collection
