Bobbin lacemaking has been a passion since 1975 and I have been teaching LEA classes since 1982
but currently the only class I am only teaching from home.

Brenda at Canterbury Lace Day

I occasionally speak at Lace Days. This is me at Canterbury in 2001 with some of my lace.

I have tried making most types of bobbin lace but my favourite is torchon because it is so versatile, looks good at any scale, takes colours
well and computer generated patterns can be bent and stretched. Please have a look at some of my other lacemaking pages:
