Making Lace Bobbins

Making Lace Bobbins

Sue was given Aunty Val’s Lace Bobbin cushion and bobbins after she had passed on. The work was incomplete and Sue has been told that the pattern not an easy one to start with.
Its only since moving here she found a group which does it.
In need of a set of bobbins and no mini lathe to turn them on she set about hand carving her own. These are made from Hoop Pine a softwood, making it easy to carve and shape.
These photos are of her first Bobbin Lace work.
The video shows her process.
