I had no idea where to put this so here seems appropriate.

Today, my mum came home with a whole ton of lace bobbins she found in an opp shop because she knows I love trying new crafts. Now I'm just trying to find some resources to get me started. It doesn't seem to be a particularly popular craft these days so I'm having a bit of trouble finding anything really useful on google. If anyone happens to know any good web or book resources that are helpful for a beginner it would be much appreciated. =]

I've seen books on Amazon for bobbin lace while searching for tatting supplies, and an old craft book I have (circa 1959) has info on bobbin lace.  Perhaps old library books or something in a thrift store?  There are also tutorials on Youtube for just about every craft I've ever heard of; you could try searching there.

Good luck!  Bobbin lace is beautiful, I hope you can get started soon!

Youtube would be your best bet. but also the SCA ,  it's a medieval reanactment group. my friend is working with a glass blower at one of the southern faires, and she was wondering about and found a SCA tent with girls doing all kinds of knitting and bobbin lace. I'm all for trying to find anything to begin myself. Untill I have money to get supplies i'm just looking up anything about it i can on google and youtube.

No body move!! I dropped my brain.

Obviously a little late here... but I found that man on you tube! His explanations are so simple.  He has tutes for the real basics and basics on how to make pillows too! 

I also found a book called "Bobbin Lace Without a Teacher"  that has some SIMPLE patterns and easy instructions.
