(''It is entirely new and show how extensive a field is open to any one having originality in ideas and taste for needlework. It also opens up suggestions for the use of the work in applied garnishes and trimmings not attempted heretofore in home work. Rich effects are obtained by using closely twisted silks, and ornaments for gowns may be made of fine wool, the ground sometimes being laid in silk of the same color-at other times the knotting being silk.'')

An excerpt from this fascinating item: ''Suggestions for the Use of Teneriffe Lace
''The following ideas have been gathered from the best makers of women's apparel both here and abroad; they are taken from work which is being done in constantly increasing amount and are not the mere speculation of what the wheels or medallions might be used for. A medallion made of fine wool is one of the garnishes for dresses and coats that promises to become extremely popular.
A beautiful effect is obtained by doing the knotting in silk. A ground work laid in white silk and the pattern woven in black; this especially in the close woven patterns, makes a rich ornament for garments of black silken material, and enables one to possess an exclusive trimming which cannot be purchased ready for use.
Rosettes made of closely twisted silk woven in the more solid designs form a beautiful trimming for evening waists. Irregular outlines may be produced by leaving out some of the threads in laying the ground, as suggested in some of the designs. Borders are made of lace wheels for cushion tops, doilies, scarfs, centre pieces, tray covers, bureau scarfs, curtains, etc.
For a Baby's Cap. Baste the wheels on a muslin pattern, and after joining them remove the pattern and sew the crown into the straight front. Finish off the edges with lace. Rows of small wheels make a beautiful insertion for underwear; and wheels of various sizes are readily adapted to all garments requiring a trimming of lace. ''
There are also numerous designs for articles of wearing apparel-such as capes, collars of various shapes and dimensions, yokes, stoles, etc. There are also pattern of borders for gowns, for curtains bureau scarfs, and some of the prettiest are those for handkerchiefs.
In fact there is scarcely an article for which patterns may not be obtained utilizing lace wheels as the principal element in the design, and in combination with braid and stitches. Among the articles used in making Teneriffe lace may be mentioned linen thread, crochet cotton, mercerized cotton, Saxony wool, embroidery silk, etc.''
There are also several pages of advertisements for the tools and materials to make this handsome lace!
