Welcome to the website of Poole Bobbin Lace Circle
Poole Bobbin Lace Circle (PBLC) was established in 1982 by a group of lacemakers. The vision of this group was to promote the knowledge and history of bobbin lace as well as to provide an opportunity for lacemaking friends to meet, work together and exchange ideas, information, patterns and inspiration. Over the years PBLC has flourished and today there are about ninety members.

PBLC's Coral Anniversary (35 years) was in 2017. Click here to find out how it was celebrated.
The highlight of the year is the annual Rose Bowl Competition and the presentations are made at the July meeting just before the AGM. Each year the competition has a special theme and all competition entries in the adult classes relate to the theme. In 2022 the theme will be 'Twenties'.
