Question
I have an old crochet curtain made with fine thread, made more than 6-7 decades ago by an ancestor, which is torn in some parts. How can I repair that? I do not have the pattern. I am familiar with crochet and have done some work - usually following given patterns. It would be wonderful if I can retsore this delicate, lacy curtain with your help and advice. Thank you for your help.
