Does anyone have any suggestions of great websites that sell lace trim? I am needing to make lap handkerchiefs for the women at my church. (Lap hankies are to to place over your lap to cover your knees for when at church and sitting in the pulpit or front row, and your skirt is above knee length).
I would like to make these lap hankies look fashionable and therefore am seeking lace trim in vibrant colors and lengths. Any ideas? Thanks!

Renaissance Trim is a possibility. But I really must tell you that your idea is one whose time has come. In my humble opinion, there is far too much flesh being shown in church due to today's mini skirts and low necklines. Especially in narrow skirts that are very short. I am certainly no prude but goodness sakes alive....very few ladies over the age of 21 look their best with their skirts mid-thigh!

How about many sites on Etsy, fast and easy.
However, why not do scarves, which can be used for other dressing?
I agree with the modesty issues, some of the TV anchorettes can't cover up while sitting on the couch, plus their sheaths are often a size too small--on purpose for the men viewing, I assume...

Hello, You might enjoy lace heaven.com They are located in Mobile, Alabama. I have purchased from them several times and have always been pleased. My purchases were made in their store while I was on vacation but I wouldn't hesitate to purchase on line. Hope you find just what 'ya need.
