>New bobbins

I just got these in the mail this week all the way from the UK. I helped a nice lady identify some lace. As a thank you, she sent me these bobbins. I could not be more thrilled! They are all so lovely. These are Midland spangled English bobbins. She even sent them already spangled. I am just so excited I can’t even explain it. These are used in making bobbin lace; they hold the thread before it is crossed and twisted together, a sort of weaving.
