The remainder of the meeting was devoted to
Sylvia showing us how to make an ornament with a single
pair of wound bobbins. Please bring your completed
ornament for show and tell and the designer of the
ornament would enjoy seeing how they turned out.
Our next meeting is November 13th from
at Ocenco, Inc, located at 10224-82nd
Pleasant Prairie, WI
We’ll be making another one-pair-lace ornament, this
one with a snowman design. It will use two new
stitches, which we’ll learn, and you will have your
choice of two different designs. I will also pass out a
small collection of other designs that you could do at
home on your own, and a handout explaining how you can
come up with your own designs including an explanation
of how I produced the snowman prickings we will be
making. If you missed the last meeting, we’ll get you
caught up in no time, so please don’t hesitate to come
Here's what you should bring:
A lace pillow
2 bobbins: 1 pair
Lots of pins a cover cloth: Any cloth to put over the
pins you have already worked
a crochet hook: I use size 8 but size is
not important. You just want to be able to grab
size 20 thread easily. I will bring several extra hooks,
so if you don't already have one, don't buy one. a pin pusher-puller: You will need to
push down and later lift up the pins as you work.
Scissors: You only need this to cut off
the excess thread when finished. Thread is optional We will be
using size 20 Lizbeth cotton in white, of course, and I
will bring a ball of that. If you want to wind
bobbins before you come, put no more than 1 1/2 yards of
thread on each bobbin.
These new ornaments are just as quick and easy
as the first one.It
will be fun. Hope to see you there.Sylvia
