General Note

  • Accompanying note: "Ada Mickler, at 69, is a woman of many talents. Aside from her castnet work (see net on display) she makes jelly and vinegar from the Spanish Datel pepper, raises and butchers her own hogs and she does handwork of all types. As she puts it...'Time is too precious, I keep busy.' This delicate handweaving is an example of 'Spanish drawnwork.' Ms. Mickler draws three threads out from the surrounding linen material and leaves three threads intact. She works around the open center weaving her background squares with an ordinary sewing needle. She then takes linen thread and weaves her motif on top of the background."
