For those who love hand made lace.
Bedfordshire bobbin lace is a braid/plait based straight lace. The designs usually involve a graceful clothwork trail that meanders through the design, and are usually curvilinear rather than geometric (except for the simplest ones). The ground is usually a 4 strand plait/braid, often with picots. The more complex designs often require threads to be constantly added and removed to achieve a good density.
