Topic: Bobbin Lace

Starched elaborate lace collars and ornate delicate headdresses may be familiar to some viewers who have seen them in old European paintings. Barbara will be demonstrating the basic technique used to create the beautiful and historically rich craft of bobbin lace making. She will show visitors how to work a simple design in bobbin lace by twisting and crossing bobbins wound with thread, using pins to hold them in place. Visitors will be given an opportunity to try their hand at lace-making.
