These days, Pat enjoys taking was is usually perceived as a flat textile into three dimensions. With Pat’s work, there’s no white and frilly ‘conventional’ lace, instead she creates dynamic, modern pieces of lacework that border on sculptures that feel organic and full of movement.

You can see some of Pat’s stunning creations on the Eastern Region Textile Forum website.
