Kantcentrum Brugge (ed.)
Bruges (B) 2016, folder with 11 pattern sheets and 2 loose-leaf pages, 30,5x21,5 cm
Text: Dutch, French, German and English
It has become an accepted tradition for the Kantcentrum to publish a folder of mixed bobbin lace patterns every two years on the occasion of the OIDFA congress – even though the patterns have nothing to do with the congresses or the places where they are held.

For this year’s OIDFA congress in Ljubljana, for the first time not one but two folders of patterns were published. The one folder (Basic) contains simpler patterns, the other (Expert) is intended more for advanced lacemakers and for those who favour the finer bobbin lace techniques.

The Expert folder contains a collection of more demanding patterns: edgings for round mats in Binche, Valenciennes and Beveren lace, a flower motif in Duchesse, a fan in rococo lace, medallions in Binche and Mechlin lace. The highlight – as in many previous folders – is the reconstruction of a piece of old Flanders lace worked by Bärbel Fleck.

Here too, knowledge of the relevant technique is simply assumed. In general, the materials required, the lace pricking and a coloured working diagram are given on the pattern sheets.
