April 13, 1994

Mr. FORD of Michigan introduced the following joint resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Post Office and Civil Service


Designating November 1994 as ‘National American Lacemaker Month’.

Whereas lacemaking is an ancient craft that dates back to the 15th century;

Whereas lacemaking has evolved in the United States to become instantly recognizable as an American folk art;

Whereas the intricate handiwork of lace features precision and detail which make these creations prized possessions; and

Whereas recognition is due to all artisans in this Nation who continue to practice the craft of lacemaking, thereby preserving a part of our rich American heritage: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That November 1994 is designated as ‘National American Lacemaker Month’. The President is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation calling on the people of the United States to observe such occasion with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.
