Pat Earnshaw's interest in lace began as a collector but she was soon involved in giving lectures and study days on the identification and other aspects of antique laces, not only in Britain but in frequent lecture tours in the USA, Australia and Europe. The Identification of Lace was her first book. Fourteen others have followed, all addressing issues of lace.
