  2. You know, making bobbin lace is still a tradition in some parts of Slovenia, but I have never seen it so close, the way it works, an d on such beautiful pictures. These are really works of art, made by much patience and I guess also love🙂 Thank you and have a nice weekend.

    • Hello Alcessa.

      Thank You for Your kind comment. Very interesting to read that in Slovenia also people have this tradition. In Finland in the town of Rauma, there is every summer Rauma bobbin lace week.

      Have a great week-end also.

  5. That looks really hard and I am glad there are people who still want to do it. Wish my Grandma could see this. She would have a story to tell, I am sure. Thanks for another great post. Is your wife doing this? I remember the impressive beading posts!

    Comment by Bondseye — October 25, 2013 @ 13:33 | Reply

    • Hi Lisa.

      Thank You. No my wife is not doing this. She is still beading, not so often, but in few weeks I’ll publish some of her works. Next winter she will start quilting also, so she said.

      Happy weekend!

  7. Fabulous laces! It’s wonderful to see people are carrying this tradition hand work. It looks so complicated and hard to work on…

      Thank You. Yes, it looks indeed complicated and I think that is complicated also (for a beginner).🙂

  8. My husband’s grandmother makes bobbin lace – I had never heard of it before meeting her. She has a pillow like that too. It is such beautiful stuff, and so few people do it anymore, at least in America, they don’t…

    • Bonjour Isa.

      Merci beaucoup. Je me rejouie que en Suisse il y a aussi des gens qui savent comment faire dentelles aux fuseaux!

      Bon week-end!

  11. It’s rather fascinating – and looks so complicated. I always admire how it’s possible to braid, twist or turn the thread which is wound on the bobbins and how it’s possible to create such delicately made patterns. Amazing!
    Some time ago I read a report about a woman in Belgium who is doing it now for 66 years (She’s 76 and started when she was 10 years old). But the report was more about herself and did not include many photos like yours showing more of the very particular tools or the technique. Great to see it here, Matti!

    Kind regards, Michèle

  31. Absolutely magnificent. I always fancied having a go at this but think I wouldn’t have the staying power to make something big using a technique that is so delicate and builds so slowly. I am full of admiration, though, and your photos are lovely. Happy weekend to you Matti!

      This requires patience and again patience. I also admire those beautiful things, which people make by hands, beads and quilts. Some quilts are real art works and their theme vary from the nature to some humoristic themes. Because You are quilt fan, You should someday to see Finnish quilts. I have twelve quilt posts.

  33. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I thought I would check yours out as well and was DELIGHTED to see you posting about different fiber arts.❤ I love bobbin lace. I don't have the patience for it myself, but I love watching people create it; a few of the members of my art guild are lace weavers and have made some beautiful things.

      I am very glad that You love bobbin lace. It is popular in Finland. For example, town called Rauma has a celebration week of bobbin lace in July. Rauma is beautiful as many of our small town. This is Rauma:
