Requirements for the Bobbin lace courses: Participants need their own lacemaking equipment: a roller pillow 35 cm, basket, bobbins, pins, crochet hook, and scissors. A roller pillow and basket may be borrowed at the course free of charge. Lacemaking equipment and thread can also be purchased at the course. A flat pillow may be used, but we highly recommend a roller pillow, because the experience of making Slovene Lace on the flat pillow is not the same.
