Lace Bobbins

A brief description of the types and how they are made

The bobbins used for lace making within the UK are grouped largely by the area where they evolved and the type of lace they were used to make.

Influence from Europe brought to the UK shores other types of bobbins which have since made their homes here. Described here are styles which I routinely make.

With the exception of the Rainbow Bobbins© , colour-coordinated to suit the Rainbow Collection© patterns - all the bobbins sold on this website are made individually by me - without the use of a copy lathe or automated equipment. Each is carefully prepared, turned and finished to perfection, and all are absolutely unique. I don't usually make bobbins to order, I make a better product when I am 'playing at woodturning'.
