"What dates it to the 1980s-90s is the scale (thick thread), the kinds of lace in the tablecloth, and the fact that it is a tablecloth. During the 1980s I took a plane to attend a lace convention, and talked with my seatmate enroute. I mentioned the…"

"The butterfly motif seemed to be very common on inexpensive handmade doilies that were being sold here in the 1980s and 1990s which came from China. I remember seeing baskets full of them in linen stores and thinking that the butterflies were an…"

"I think the opinions are different because you have different strips of lace all sewn together, i do see Torchon as being the main type of lace and the last strip being some sort of tape lace, maybe this would explain the colour differences you are…"

"It is the kind of bobbin lace that was made in China during the 1980s and 1990s. Bands 1 and 3 are torchon, band 2 is Cluny, band 5 is tape lace, and band 4 is just a braided ground to fill the space. I think it was made in strips, but were hooked…"

"It looks like a commercial piece made fairly recently in China or Vietnam.  From the images it looks like it was made with soft fairly coarse cotton threads. It that the case? -Karen"

Can anyone help with this?

As a novice lacemaker (but one derailed macular degeneration) I would like some help piecing together a story about this item I found in a charity shop. I have identified most of the motifs and that it was constructed in five panels, each worked around the corners. I can also say that the tension is not always consistent and that there is some colour variation within and between the panel. I lack the experience, however, to put together a coherent story as to who may have created it and when:…See More

Bobbin
Tell us more about your lace interests.
I inherited my love of embroidered linen and lace from my mother who amassed vast amounts of each sourced from auctions and family (1910-1975). I had always intended to learn how to make bobbin lace but never got around to it. That was until I was diagnosed with macular degeneration and thought I had better do something about. So, I'm a almost blind bobbin lace-maker(!), who now tends to focus on 'rescuing' bobbin lace and embroidered linen from charity shops, auctions, relatives and friends. The pieces my daughter rolls her eyes at are sold at collectors fairs.
Give us titles of lace books or articles you have written, that you want us to know about.
