with Elizabeth Peterson
Elizabeth Peterson started making bobbin lace with her mother in 1985 and she started teaching weekly near her home in 1995. Some of the classes she teaches include Torchon, Bedfordshire, Buckspoint, Brugge, Flanders, Binche, and various tape laces. She also teaches annually at International Organization of Lace, Inc.

Elizabeth has studied various laces with many well known teachers, including Ulrike Voelcker, Kumiko Nakasaki, and studied Bedfordshire lace extensively with Christine Springett. She has won numerous awards for her lace at the local, state, and national levels. The Utah Arts Council awarded her their Traditional Arts teaching grant. She truly enjoys making lace and values all the friends she has made over the years because of bobbin lace.
Creating a Sampler of Christmas Ornaments is an intermediate level bobbin lace instructional program which assumes you have made some lace before. In this video there are 6 ornament patterns, each of a different type of bobbin lace. Ornaments included are a Russian Tape Lace Christmas tree, a Brugge flower, a Tape Lace star, a Torchon circle, a Celtic knot, and a Bedfordshire circle. Also included are working instructions, diagrams, and a pricking for each pattern. We also provide 6 rings, 3 each of gold and silver and 2 medallions center pieces which you can use for making most of the pieces.
