Throughout January I’ve have been taking part in a Instagram challenge set by Jane Fuller of “Bobbin & Wire”.
It had prompt for each day some easily connected to lace and lace making and some making you think out of the box. Have a look on Instagram (link to my page) for #lacechallenge_2021 – but also the other fantastic lace makers from around the world that have contributed over the month.
This year has been a strange one; and with many events not going ahead; or if they are will have a different feel.
So if you thinking of making your own Christmas decorations 🎄 why not try this Robin Kit; comes with a felt wing or bobbin lace pattern. So suitable for lacemakers and non-lacemakers
