      My friend Brenda who just wrote to the digest has
      caught on fast, <BR>
      when I called and told her about it, that I had seen
      it done at a <BR>
      fair in Salem, she went into it with a vengance and
      caught on fast.  <BR>

      Hi everybody,

      Glad to join your group! Only 6 years ago I began
      bobbinlace. Didn't have to spend much money for
      bobbins and pillows so the most I made by myself. Do
      You want to have a look at my HP? www.lacemaking.it
      Inside You will find in The Lace Names-List the HP of
      the bobbinmaker Kenn van-Dieren.

      I cannot work with sprangled bobbins. Mine are very
      light and not all of them perfectly sanded and smooth.

      Jean in Oklahoma gives me an idea with her
      bobbin-bridge. Till now I divided threads and
      bobbins on the pillos with pins.

      As I have nearly a hundred bobbins all with just 30 -
      50 cm of fine thread I learn Honiton Lace - it's
      amazing! I forget everything when I sit at my new
      selfmade Honiton-pillow filled with pressed hay for
      rabbits (and what a good smell of hay)! This my new
      Honiton pillow isn't yet in my site but soon You will
      find it there. I know, Honiton pillows are filled with
      straw .....

      Does this group have a magazine? And another question:
      who knows something about Valenciennes Lace (patterns,
      diagramms, books and collections)?

      Happy lacemaking!

        > My favorite stand for bobbin lace pillows is actually one made for laptop computers. I bought it many years ago at an office supply store, and I've been using it ever since. You can see a picture of a very similar one here: http://www.staples.com/Altra-Adjustable-Mobile-Laptop-Desk/product_729375 . (Mine doesn't have the mousepad.) I put my pillow on the wider section and instructions on the narrower one. The sections can be tilted to make viewing/working very comfortable.
