Twenty-three black and white prints (plus negatives). Diaz learned lace making after moving to Florida from Puerto Rico in 1983.

The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, who was later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.

Once called bone lace, bobbin lace is made using bobbins, which were used to store the thread for the lace, act as handles to move the thread, and give weight to the threads to keep tension against the pins.
