Description
Sixteen color slides. Once called bone lace, bobbin lace is made using bobbins, which were used to store the thread for the lace, act as handles to move the thread, and give weight to the threads to keep tension against the pins. These slides illustrated techniques De Diaz used in her bobbin lace--based on traditional Puerto Rican designs. There are also images of various bobbin types.
