BOBBIN LACE consists of many different styles. Bocks Point - A very fine lace maybe used for Wedding Veils. Bedfordshire - consisting mainly of plaits and the dreaded leaves. Honiton is also a very fine lace, really good eyesight needed for this. Torchon was a simple lace, the name derived from the French word for rag or duster. Sometimes known as Beggars Lace as it was quick and cheap to produce. Most of our group work this lace - Please don't take offence Ladies!
Lace making is a very relaxing hobby.
