Bobbin lace

Syksy on hyvää aikaa aloittaa uusi harrastus. Pitsinnypläyksen alkeet voi opetella nyt myös netin avulla ja ensimmäistä kertaa ihan suomeksi.
Autumn is a good time for starting a new hobby, for example making a bobbin lace.

  1. Voih, kun ihanan näköistä pitsiä tulossa! Siinäpä onkin muutama nypylä poikineen!

  2. Wow - my mum tried Honiton lace making - we lived in Devon, England in the 1980s and many women (OK, middle class women) had a go as there were some good teachers around and a real resurgence of interest (perhaps because Honiton lace is on the British royal wedding dresses, and there were two Royal Weddings in the 1980s). But it was VERY difficult and not many people got further than a flower or two. I remember a friend's mum made me an lace owl paperweight - a little Honiton owl. I don't seem to have it any more.

  3. I have to admit that I have never tried to make this kind of lace.

    The photo in the post is from exhibition at Rauma where the tradition of bobbin lace is still very strong.
