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.
