Crochet first came to Ireland in the 1700s, in the hands of Ursuline nuns who had learned the technique in France, where it had developed as a shortcut for making Venetian point needle lace. Its characterized raised edges and fine mesh background could be crocheted many times faster than the traditional needle lace and required simple, readily available tools.The craft of crochet lace remained sealed behind the doors of convents and needlework schools until 1845, when the potato blight struck the country. A quarter of the population starved or immigrated over the course of ten years. Several wealthy women, horrified by the suffering, founded schools and stores where Irish crochet lace making was taught and sold. They marketed it to their friends and family around Europe, creating a trend that helped to support the Irish people.
