Last week I went down to Kent to attend a meeting of the Lacemakers of Puget Sound. Lacemakers of Puget Sound is a charter chapter of the International Old Lacers. Amazing work and amazing ladies! There were some ladies working on tatted pieces, but I was blown away by the intricacy of the bobbin laces being produced and how many fancy bobbins everyone owned!
Here are several yards of delicate black silk bobbin lace in creation.
Another lady was working on a two-color piece; you can see the pattern she's using on the right side of the photo.
Here is a lovely lady with a handmade lace neckpiece.
