Karen Quickfall (Ruskin lace)

Karen Quickfall is an experienced teacher of Ruskin Lace having taken over from the late Elizabeth Prickett on her retirement in 2006. She teaches this Lake District speciality lace at Higham Hall, local to her home in Lancashire and to many groups around the country. Ruskin Lace is a needle lace worked into linen fabric using a combination of drawn thread work, cut-linen work and needlelace fillings, in a geometric design. Karen’s classes are designed for both beginners, who will start their Ruskin journey with a partly prepared starter kit, as well as those with more experience who are working on larger designs of their own choice.
