"Thanks as always for your comments. The tape lace one has some places where two layers of lace cross over but others, like the cross and sort of leaf shaped pieces have no joins at all."

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY 

I am resolving to finish 2 projects I have set up. One is a Binche learning piece, which is quite difficult for me. I am intimidated by it. The 2nd is a floral Bucks which I intend to decorate a purse. (Enlarged and worked in thick thread so it will hold up to use) This one also intimidates me. I have been using my cat as an excuse, but he has calmed down.  I keep on thinking of simple projects that won't take a lot of…

Hi Lorelei!  Thanks for your welcome!  You may remember me from Needle Lace Talk, which is where my work is showcased. 

I've joined this site because of my growing interest in identifying types of lace, even those I don't make.  I recently had the opportunity to get some close-up pictures of antique laces--some machine made (early Leavers loom work) and some handmade (a really interesting embroidered piece simulating gros point, but using appliqued linen!)--and I was able to identify them, but when it came to the bobbin lace, I had little to say because I don't know about that form of the art. 

I hope to learn a lot here, and find helpful people when I have questions!

Thank you for welcoming me to the group. This artifact, which was identified in the report as a bobbin, looked odd to me and I questioned whether it was actually a bobbin.  I did some additional research and it turns out to be a circa 1880-1900 bone sewing stiletto/awl.  It was found in Baltimore.  Thank you anyway and if we do find any bobbins, I will get back in touch.

Thanks for the intro. As I'm new to this I've always wanted to try bobbin lace, tried it. Did something wrong cause I ended up with a big knot so I just put it away. Now i see that bobbin lace has come back and with the marvels of technology I feel it is going to be much easier to learn.
