Lace Shopping

My name is Lydia Guadagnoli. I am Illustration Major at the University of the Arts and will start my Junior year in the Fall. For a couple of weeks now I've been interning with alumni Veronica Cianfrano, a local collaborative artist. She got her MFA in Painting at University of the Arts in 2010 and has since then been featured in galleries and shows. She was a co-founder of CHER (CHampions of Empty Rooms) a group of passionate artists who work together to make unique installations and drawings. 
Today me and another intern named Megan were sent to find antique lace and doilies for Veronica's upcoming installation. The installation is going to be a gallery display illustrating the life of the poet Edgar Allen Poe. 
We met in front of Hamilton Hall and headed towards Philly AIDS Thrift on 5th and Bainbridge Street. After searching through bins and bins of fabric we could not find anything usable. Veronica instructed us that the doilies had to be less than a foot long and each piece had to be around $1 each. So we continued to 4th Street (Fabric Row) and managed to find other thrift stores and vintage shops that had several pieces of lace which we ended up purchasing. Tomorrow we will meet with Veronica and show her the lace we found. Hopefully if the lace is acceptable we will help finish some parts if the installation. I will be sure to bring my sewing supplies!
