February 11 Meeting Preview: Pineapple Motif

The pineapple is a traditional crocheted lace pattern, which dates back to the 1840s. Pineapples are considered a symbol of hospitality and pineapple doilies were traditionally seen on dinner tables and in guest rooms. While they were an especially popular motif in the 1920s and 1930s, they remain popular today. These motifs aren’t just limited to doilies – the adaptability of the motif lends itself well to a variety of projects from table runners to bedspreads to garments. As an added bonus, the openwork lace designs work up quickly!
