Hello all,

Are there resources for bobbin lace patterns from Norway? A quick google search shows a bunch of information on Hardanger and tatting, but not much if anything on bobbin lace. Weirdly specific, and might be a long shot, but I'm hoping you lovely folk can help.

Thank you,

Tracy

As I understand it, Norway was not a prime bobbin lace country, but Sweden was. Vadstena was a major lace center in Sweden.  Look for the black bar above. On the right is a search slot which works just on laceioli. Type in Vadstena to get links to comments and photos about that lace. Possibly Asa Janssen may know something. I will also ask on facebook, and report back.

Tracy - I already have one response. There is a facebook group for Norwegian bobbin lace, and many of the posts are in English. Also it is a public group. So you can join and ask there.

Thanks, Lorelei!

A comment on facebook

Elisabeth Kristin Bjørklund Bøhler Norway had no lace making industry like in Denmark (Tonder) or Sweden (Vadstena).
In Norway, lace was made for sale in the vicinity of the lace maker, like in the local valley or small town. 
Also, in Norway, a lot of metal lace (gold or silver or both) was made, for use on our national costumes.

I am also interested in learning if there are bobbin lace patterns that were traditional in Norway. My husband’s ancestors on his father’s side are Norwegian. (Notice our last name is Hansen. LOL) So thanks for asking this question! I have subbmitted my request to join the Norwegian fb group.

I just did a google search and came up with this.  Sometimes you play around in one of these and patterns can be found.  Hope this might help a little.
