    Hi all

    I'm new today so just wanted to say hello!

    I am 29, and my main craft is bobbin lace making which I have done since I was 9. I also enjoy paper crafting, blackwork and would like to get into beading (if time and finances allowed... ).

    Looking forward to chatting to you all

    hello and welcome to the forum.
    I have several friends who lace and I am very impressed with what they turn out. I did lace making for about three years when I was nursing, but the bobbins were what did it for me!. I fast became addicted to spangling bobbins rather than making the lace and the beads spiraled from there into jewellery making and where i am now with two online bead stores and a jewellery making business...... from little acorns!
    I have to say I am not sure what blackwork is... so please enlighten me!

    Hi

    I love the bobbins too but have to admit that I usually buy them ready spangled! I always quite fancied jewellery making too but there never seems to be enough hours in the day to learn all these new things. Maybe one day..

    PS Blackwork is a form of embroidery but just in black thread (that's probably not the best description of it but hopefully you get what I mean...!)
