Bobbin Lace

On March 3rd 2012 the Fredericksburg Spinning and Weavers Guild hosted a presentation on bobbin lace by member Margaret Campbell and members of the Piedmont Lace Guild.  Bobbin lace is considered a “true” lace fiber art it’s history is long and storied.  The art form is experiencing a bit of a resurgence.  Bobbin lace can be an extremely intricate and delicate form of lace.  Below are some pictures of the bobbin lace tools and equipment and of me trying to make lace.  The experience is much different that knitting lace.  I’m not a weaver, but I can imagine that bobbin lace and weaving have some similarities.
