Bobbin Lace

The chapter of the EGA that I belong to sends out a monthly newsletter. There is always a link to the Lace Museum included so last month I clicked on the link. Now I have another hobby!

These are the first two. The one on the left was done “in” (zoom) class and uses size #8 DMC thread. The one on the right I did as homework with #12 DMC thread. What a big difference! I can see that I need to work more on getting the right tension on the threads as they are not straight.

This is from our second class and uses #8 DMC thread. There are two moves that we have learned: “cross” and “twist”. The different combinations of these are what makes up the pattern. Super cool.
