Early Bobbin Lace

Early Bobbin Lace is the lace designed up until the mid 17th century, or approximately 1650.  These early laces were often made freehand, but they are not the same as what has become known as the peasant free hand laces of many regions.  All aspects of early lace are welcome for discussion here, including revival era laces, publications new and old, materials, etc.

Lena Dahren, Med kant av guld och silver, En studie av knypplade barder och uddar av meetall 1550-1640,  This study examines bobbin-made borders and edgings in gold and silver during the period 1550-1640. The Swedish collections that were studied are unusually well provenanced, which is very important when studying lace, as there were so many copies of lace made in the 19th century. It is a dissertation presented to Uppsala Universitet in 2010. It is in Swedish, but there are so many beautiful color photos and diagrams that it is still a useful book for the non-Swedish speaker, although it would be even more useful if it were to be translated. One thing that sets it apart is that the author is a skilled lacemaker as well as a scholar. The address given for distribution is guld.silver.kant@gmail.com but Lena informs me that the only dealer who carries it is Barbara Fay Verlag so potential buyers should contact Barbara Fay Verlag.

I have just found out that there are some alterations available for downloading and printing off for the Rosemary shepherd book " An Early Lace Workbook."

Go to http://www.lacedaisypress.com.au/publication1.html

And scroll down below the book, and you will find 6 PDF pages you can print.  Some text, and some are diagrams.
