Maple Leaf Lace Bobbins
"Maple Leaf" lace bobbins are a copyright design, permission is required to duplicate images or items.

Photos of lace bobbins made of all the species available can be viewed (here)

I make my own design "Maple Leaf" bobbins.
The shape includes a tapered square end with a weight added inside the handle end for bobbins more than 3 grams weight.
All bobbins are made 'in house'.

The tapered square end prevents the bobbins from rolling
The bobbins can be arranged in a stable semicircle and a group can be pushed sideways without piling on each other.
With a little practice the bobbin shape allows a pair to be picked up between a thumb and forefinger.

Bobbin styles / Types     (photos show relative size)
