Lacemaking Main Page
One day my Mom saw me turning a chess set for my son and asked if I had ever tried to make a lace bobbin. I said no, and asked her to describe one for me. The result was the right shape, but about 15mm thick. I still have it as a reminder of where I started. Each time I presented her with a freshly-turned bobbin, my Mom suggested corrections, consistently using the word 'thinner'... One day, after I had made about 200 bobbins, she gave a satisfied nod, and suggested that I might like to try and sell a few. Little did I know that my bobbins would compare most favourably with the competition, and I entered the lace making world able to offer an heirloom quality lace bobbin from the start. I've improved since then, and hope that I will continue to do so as long as I turn lace bobbins...
With the exception of the Rainbow bobbins,
all the items for sale in these pages have been made by me.
Bobbin Blanks for those who like to make their own or to sell.
