Margaret Morgan is a member of the Australian Lace Guild and the Embroiderers’ Guild of South Australia and has been taking classes in filet lace and netting for over twenty years. She is also a miniaturist, and a member of the Miniature Needlework Society, and for many years ran a business called “Thumbelina”, designing and selling miniature embroidery kits for dolls houses. In 2005 Margaret retired and she and her husband moved to a four acre property near the South Australian country town of Yankalilla. It was then that she wrote her book Filet Lace, Stitches & Patterns, which was published in 2006. Since then, while still taking the occasional workshop in filet lace or netting and regularly attending local craft groups, she has been dividing her time among her passions: designing and stitching filet lace, netting and miniature embroideries; gardening; and local history research.
