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.
Thank you for accepting me onto the group. I'm just making a home made bolster pillow so I can start practicing and have been reading up as much as I can on the basics. I will read the posts suggested.
Thank you for having me here. Actually, I found your site while I was researching a small sample of genuine antique Irish Crochet I was able to purchase over the weekend. I will post photos and the story of how I came across this piece later, I have to leave the house shortly. I have just begun learning the Irish technique, I have 2 motifs from the book Irish Crochet Lace Motifs Collected And Described By Eithne D'Arcy. I need to get them posted at Ravelry and here; I am almost finished replacing the difficult edging on a 9 Ring Flower from Ms D'Arcy's book. My ambition is to produce a finished jacket, but I am very much just getting started.
It is an honor to be a part of this group, and I am excited to participate. I hope you are having a wonderful start to your week
Thank you Lorelei for adding me to the group. I would appreciate it if you could change my name to Julie Santos Villegas (what I use on facebook). Julita is my full name but I am Julie for short. Thank you Lorelei.
Thank you Lorelei! This site is one of the most valuable places I can access places to learn bobbin lace making. I just figured out that my original posting that I thought was going to you, ended up being a Facebook posting instead! LOL! Had I known that, I would not have written something so long! LOL!
