Golden Bobbins hosted an Idrija Workshop at Ann’s house this Spring.  Allie Marguccio taught her 2nd workshop here, organized by Sumi.  It was an excellent weekend, full of fun, friends and lace.  Because the theme of the NCRL Spring Lace Day in Chapel Hill on April 16 is Lace Jewelry, many of the participants worked on earrings and necklaces.  We leaned some wonderful new techniques.

    Hello and let me start off by saying all the work is beautiful. I am fairly new to bobbin lace making, started last March 2015 with Torchon and now learning Schneeberger. I love making lace; it has brought me such relaxation and wisdom. I live in PA and have joined a very small lace group but would love to learn Idrija which is what I am striving for. I have purchased videos on Russian lace along with a Schneeberger video and Lia-Baumister-Jonker has personally sent me some of her Schneeberger books. I am wondering if you can recommend any videos or books to teach me this type of lace. Anything you can help me with is greatly appreciated. Best wishes and keep lacing.

      Dear Diana, Thank you for your kind comments. For Idrija, I have been using “Idrija Spitze” by Irma Sedej and Maja Svetlik, but I think it is out of print. Holly Van Sciver has several Idrija lace books available. I have seen “Idrija Lace Narrow Cloth Stitch” and its very nice – lots of instruction. Her website is She is a reliable vendor – lots of nice books and supplies. Best wishes, Michelle
