Jo Edkins replied to Trinity's discussion A couple of questions in the group Bobbinlace Beginners
"Thread slipping off bobbins - You can try doing two half hitches. Makes it harder to unwind the thread, but they're less likely to slip off. Some threads slip off more than others. I'm sure that spangles don't make a difference.…"

Trinity replied to Trinity's discussion A couple of questions in the group Bobbinlace Beginners
"Based on what you both said in your replies, it seems that I have my bobbins wound correctly and the half hitch is also correct. My other guess is that I simply don't have enough thread on the bobbins to keep it from slipping. I put on enough…"

"2. The unwinding issue is mostly a matter of doing the hitch correctly. Here is a diagram and explanation. http://lynxlace.com/learningbobbinlace-basics.html#winding-hitch 1. keep all your bobbin threads approximately the same length -- about 4…"

Elizabeth Ligeti replied to Trinity's discussion A couple of questions in the group Bobbinlace Beginners
"If you use spangled bobbins, they should be enough weight to keep the threads tensioned. As to unwinding as you work, - make sure you have the bobbins wound the correct way, (not backwards!) As you look down on the head of the bobbin, you should…"

A couple of questions

1.  How do you maintain proper tension as you work?  Should I be looking at putting weights on my bobbins?  2.  How do you keep your bobbins from unwinding too easily (even with the slip loop)?  I think it's happening as I make the twists.See More

"I will, thanks.  Pins don't seem to be doing the job so far."

Trinity replied to Trinity's discussion Bobbin cover/lifter/separator in the group Tools and Equipment
"I guess my bobbins are so light that gravity isn't enough to keep the pairs separated.  It seems to me that using pins to do the job isn't much different from using the beads on the cloth-with-hole.  Do you find that the pins…"

Lorelei Halley Administrator replied to Trinity's discussion Bobbin cover/lifter/separator in the group Tools and Equipment
"I usually spread the bobbins out in a fan, so that gravity separates them without tangling. However, people who use bolster pillows often use pins to separate pairs of bobbins."

Trinity replied to Trinity's discussion Bobbin cover/lifter/separator in the group Tools and Equipment
"Hmmm. . . I think the idea of the beads is to help keep the pairs separated.  Wouldn't that be preferable to having them constantly get tangled?  Or maybe my bobbins aren't heavy enough?"

Lorelei Halley Administrator replied to Trinity's discussion Bobbin cover/lifter/separator in the group Tools and Equipment
"I looked at that. The cloth-with-a-hole was invented in the 1980s in Europe, I think. I made several for myself, with different size holes. The beads, I think, would be a colossal annoyance. Threads would be constantly getting snagged on the beads.…"

Lorelei Halley Administrator replied to Trinity's discussion What size thread is this? in the group Threads
"Trinity It is impossible to know from a video, or a photo, what size thread someone is using. The differences in thickness are very small, and these small differences produce very different results. I looked at the patterns from your 2nd url. These…"

Trinity replied to Lindsey Hughes's discussion Traveling with pillow and supplies in the group Tools and Equipment
"Revisiting this discussion.  I've been looking for patterns to make tote bags for my various types of needlework projects.  All of the ones I've found so far are just flat, zippered envelope types.  (I thought of Vera…"

What size thread is this?

Can any of you tell what size thread the lady is using in this video?  She doesn't specify anywhere that I've been able to find.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TG1VgDiWoIcHere's the pattern she provides:https://www.dropbox.com/s/qlfwp5f6gypcis6/2.pdf?dl=0(Those are HUGE bobbins!)See More

Elizabeth Ligeti replied to Trinity's discussion Winding the Bobbins in the group Bobbinlace Beginners
"One thing I (eventually!!) learned, was after cutting off bobbins, and they still had too much thread on them to throw away, then keep them together with the reel of thread it came off, so you know what it is!! (or keep a written note of the thread…"
