Main: Lucet








Lucet


The Lucet

This was a very basic, but essential, craft tool from pioneer days in Upper Canada. With a little patience, some practice and some yarn early Canadians could make single braided cords that were used for a variety of practical purposes in early Canadian homes. Our version includes instructions and yarn but....no patience.


Sampler of Elizabeth Wood
1815. From "Antiques of
American Childhood" by
Kathryn Morrison McClinton

In "Antiques of American Childhood" McClinton states...
Every little girl, rich or poor, was expected to make a sampler. The sampler was a sample or pattern of stitches, but it also served to teach the alphabet and was an exercise in neatness and perseverance.
