Judith Civan studied English literature at Radcliffe College and Columbia University. She then worked as a reporter and feature writer at the Newark Star-Ledger. She was also a columnist for the New York and Washington Jewish Weeks. She learned to make bobbin lace in Cambridge, England during her husband’s sabbatical year there and continued learning during another sabbatical at the Royal School of Needlework in London. After returning the U.S., at the suggestion of her teachers in London, she began teaching bobbin lace to American beginning students, first at Main Line School Night and later at the Main Line Center of the Arts. In the summer of 1983, she went to Bruges, Belgium to study Binche lace at the Kantcentrum. In 1990, she went to Rauma, Finland for the Lace Week there and wrote a story about it for the NewYork Times travel section and an article for Lace and Crafts Quarterly.
