An older release of the plugins (for a pre 1.0 version of InkScape) has a 5th plug-in, it complements an interactive online tool. This tool is replaced by https://d-bl.github.io/GroundForge/tiles
The tool generates thread diagrams from pair diagrams. The new tool groups the segments of a line and doesn't need the 5th plugin any more.

This page is a collection of the little samples I've made while learning various styles of bobbin lace. I am a sort of methodical plodder.
See New revival for intermediate and advanced bobbin laces. See2 Structural Classes for description of differences between the various kinds. Newest
These are from my book TORCHON BOBBIN LACE LESSONS.

Any shape of bobbin will work. Just match it to your thread size.

I recommend a cookie shaped pillow for Bedfordshire because the patterns often have braids moving backwards for short distances, and this is very awkward on a roller pillow.

|These 2 weird samples were made when a student wanted to try a collar pattern. I saw that making a diagram or series of diagrams was going to be very much work. So I decided that enlarging the pattern to 300% and using colored pearl 5 might be easier. These were actually stretching my own competency at the time, so I needed to work a sample anyway to prove to myself that I could do it before trying to teach a student. Wherever you see a new color appearing out of nowhere, that is where I hung in some new threads. The long tails are pairs I cut out when the trail became too dense. My solution for 712 has room for improvement.|

Cluny These are all from the LePuy school. revival era ClunyModern examplescharacteristics*
| Simple laces, include|
1. connecting braid to foot
2. windmill join (crossing 2 braids)
|These all involve crossing single pairs through braids, or abstracting single pairs from a braid.|
|These involve using the central pin more than once. At each successive pass you lift out the pin, make the new stitch, replace the pin, pushing the threads upwards.|
|Creating a braid of more than 2 pairs.|
I designed the corner.
|These demonstrate the Cluny method of connecting a braid to the cloth trail. Two braid pairs enter. One of them plus the old weaver, move into the departing braid (green lines). The other entering braid pair becomes the new weaver (blue).|
