Bobbin Lace Bookmark: A Modern Take on an Old-World Craft by Cori Large

It’s finally here! One of my 2019 Goals was to self-publish my book Bobbin Lace Bookmark: A Modern Take on an Old-World Craft on Amazon/KDP. I’m so proud of myself for working hard and completing this goal. It has allowed me to achieve a life-long dream of becoming a published author. It is available in both paperback and eBook form. I will be filming a few accompanying How-To videos for this book shortly, and this post will be updated with those links shortly.

In this book, I take you through a brief history of bobbin lace, how to create the paper template you’ll be using, how to measure the crochet thread, set up the wooden bobbins, set up the lace pillow, and take you step-by-step through the pattern so by the end you will have made a lace bookmark.

There are over 70 pictures to help the novice get started and check themselves throughout the pattern. At the end of the book, I provide a list of organizations, websites, and YouTube channels the user can consult for further help.

This year is the three year anniversary of my first YouTube channel: TalesFromAPolkCountyGirl. The purpose of the channel was to compliment the various posts on this blog.

I’ve learned a lot in the last three years: time management, content management, audience interest, etc. It was because of YouTube I earned my first passive income payment (via Adsense), which was an exciting moment for me.

At the beginning of each year since starting my channel, I’ve posted a list of the Top 10 videos for the previous year. To commemorate this milestone, I’m going to share a list of the Top 10 Most Viewed Videos from the beginning of the channel. I’m very interested to see this list.
