Please note that Mme. Hadley was a Lace Maker, and not a pattern writer. Her patterns are not the easiest to follow - but her wisdom and skills are the best of her day. She was the editor of the Butterick lace making books, winner of the 1892 World's Fair lace making competition and shop owner who supplied and repaired laces for the finest families in the country.
