Anna Valeire’s Crochet Patterns


I haven’t been able to find any biographical information about Anna Valeire. I would surely love to know more about her life, and about what she was like.


I can only tell what I know about her after having studied her needlework designs. Surely, judging from her work, she was detail-oriented and had an eye for beautiful and exquisite things. She was skilled at designing for several needlework techniques, including crochet, tatting, and beadwork. Most of her pattern books that I have owned emphasized crochet, with quite a few tatting projects too. She was especially good at designing delicate, feminine crocheted and tatted lingerie and nightgown yokes. However, she designed a variety of different types of projects including crocheted edgings, fringes, medallions, flowers, and embellishments.


The Anna Valeire pattern books I’ve owned have all been undated, but I would guess that they are circa 1910’s-1920’s. Some of them may be earlier, I really could not say for sure. If anyone has further information, please comment! I’d really appreciate any additional information or insights you may have to offer.
