Author Bio: Jean Leader

Jean Leader discovered bobbin lacemaking some forty years ago. At first it was just an addition to the textile crafts that she already enjoyed, but she soon found herself spending more time on lacemaking than anything else. She is the author of several instructional books and DVDs on different styles of lace, and has even produced an iPhone app on lace identification. In addition to teaching classes in Glasgow,where she lives, she has taught workshops in Britain, the United States, Canada and Australia. She received the Marsh Heritage Crafts Volunteer Award for 2015. Of all the many styles of bobbin lace, Bedfordshire has always been her particular favourite, and in this book she has brought many years of experience to introducing the techniques of Bedfordshire lace in a series of patterns, some traditional, and others designed recently.
