For those who love hand made lace.
There are also my free lessons on this site.
I have a similar lesson on my website: http://lynxlace.com/learningbobbinlace-clothstitch.html
Glad you enjoyed a Lace Day, Dee. They are good fun - and Wonderful "Therapy". I don't do much lace Making at Lace Days - I go around and chat to people, and see what they are doing, and get help, give help, and get new ideas, find out about new threads, etc! I can make lace at home, so I try to see, hear, and learn as much as I can when out at Lace Gatherings!!
I have ordered a starter kit from Holly van sciver.....kit number 4 with out bobbins as I have purchased east midlands and am in the process of spangling them.....20 inch cookie pillow.....it should be here next week.....am very excited to get working!!!!
Sounds good, Dee. Have you decided what to use for lesson material? There are 2 good online possibilites. My own is here on this site, and focuses on laces based on braids/plaits. Jo Edkins site is very good and focuses on torchon -- a geometric lace.

Lovely bobbins, nice spangles.
Those are nice bobbins - especially for a stater Kit, - and you have spangled them vry nicely. enjoy using them!
This is one thing about Bobbin Lace - and the English style bobbins - they look so pretty on the pillow when working!!!
Then you will also have the fun of collecting Special Event bobbins, with names,& dates on them - one for each child, or grandchild, with their name & birth date, on, and then more for special events you go to ... And on and on!! It is never ending, but a nice , Useful, collection of souvenirs!!!!! :)
