Honiton bobbin lace is a very fine and delicate part lace.  Motifs are shaped by adding and removing threads as needed. It was based in Devonshire.  The early 18th century version was named Bath Brussels by Santina Levey.

Now i have the spooks!! I have just been on the net going from one blog to another, the previous blog i visited before coming to this page was the link you have just provided below!
