ABSTRACT
In this article the author offers observations on the embroidery technique known as depression lace, Hoover lace or Hoover star embroidery (after the U.S. president Herbert Hoover). Particular focus is given to how the technique, in which simple embroidery is stitched onto gingham fabric, gained popularity during the Great Depression (1929-1933) in the U.S. The author also provides information on threads that were popular for use in depression lace.
