Lacework by Beatrice Berchey

Date
1986-11-26
Description
Seven color slides. Berchey learned to tat (make lace) in Johnston, Pennsylvania from an aunt, who tatted for money. Badly burned when she was four, Berchey was often home-bound, and tatting was an escape. The Florida Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1987 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalis, Steve Fragos, Merri Belland, and Barbara Seitz as preliminary research for a joint folk art between the Florida Folklife Program and the Florida Museum of History. The field researchers focused on those areas previously overlooked by FFP staff. The research focused on identifying folk artists and locating appropriate exhibit objects.
