History

Made in 1972 by the owner, Hazel Jarmyn in South Australia. "I am Australian born in a northern town named Booborowrie South Australia, in my grandmother's house and have always been a very keen needle person. I love to sew as well as other needlework, including tatting and bobbin lace. I lived on the same farm until 1979 when we moved to the city in semi retirement and taught all sorts of needlework for 25 years. [A] foundation member of the Australian Lace Guild in South Australia and still like to do all kinds of work."
[Hazel Jarmyn, 10 January 1998]
