Links to Free Bobbin Lace Patterns

Blen is short for "Bobbin lace European Network". It took me a while to learn how to figure out how to navigate this site, and some of it is in different languages, but it has a lot of information for the lace maker. On the Training-Online Page, you can pick one of the four kinds of lace listed under the title of the the page (near the top of the page), and these will take you to pages with information on lacing and some free patterns.
You will need to register (free) to download, but there are several nice prickings at Kloeppelshop.de
The Lace Guild has extracts in pdf format of some of the books they sell, and some of the extracts have prickings. Go to Our Books and Bobbins page to find the links to the extracts.
Steph Peters Bobbin Lace Page From her page, you can find grids for bobbin lace, or, if you prefer, a downloadable grid program. Also free prickings (I saw at least two for spiders - a Christmas Spider designed by Jacky McDoual and a Honiton Spider designed by Jacqui Southworth).
