"Kim, thank you again for being so generous with information and for the book list.  Bobbin lace from the 15th and 16th centuries is very intriguing, and you gave me a taste of working it for the first time in your wire lace class in Newberg. I…"

Lorelei Halley Administrator replied to Laurie Elliott's discussion Stitches used in early bobbin lace in the group Early Bobbin Lace
"I think that mostly sewings were not usual. But there are several examples of tape/braid laces in LePompe 1559. Tape laces have to have sewings. But I also think there are some examples of braided/plaited laces in Lepompe which have a Flanders type…"

"I agree with Carolina that sewings are not usually used.  At this time, I do not think it is possible to say it never happened.  I have seen some very creative joins.  One of my favorites is where two bobbins simply swing around one…"

"Usually, they do not use sewing... and yes, twists were made when necessary.  The methods, some times very clever to get the intended result, just combining plaits and twists, as well as tallies, rectangular shapes, sometimes very long, and…"

Stitches used in early bobbin lace

Please, has anyone determined for sure what stitches and connection methods were used in bobbin lace in the 16th Century?  Did they ever just twist the thread rather than plait it?  And did they use sewings?  I am a little confused because of differing instructions in books on modern reconstructions.See More

"Lorelei, I actually just was curious about the lace tokens and how they were used. I guess for all we know, they may have just been more for advertising than anything, although worker exploitation, like the poor, will apparently always be with us."

"I understand better what your question was really about. I don't know if there were similar practices in Great Britain at that time. I doubt that only American industrialists used such tactics. But, like I said, I don't know. Interesting…"
