About Us

Hello and Welcome. I am happy to see you here. My name is Bobbie Heywood and I am your host.

I live in Tasmania with my Husband. Both my kids have now moved out and bought their first house. The eldest also got married Now 2020 and gave me a grandson in March 2020. I began my lace journey 11 years ago, even though I first saw bobbin lace well over 22 years ago. In this time I have been on the State Committee and the National Committee from 2017 to 2019. I have demonstated at The Quilt Fair, the Deloraine Craft Fair, The Embroiders Guild and The Museum in 2018 when the Triennial was held in Tasmania.

Lace Worx is a business that started in 2018 after I bought out Lace Inspirations. Up until that time I had been a small time seller of threads to the locals after they complained of having to always send off for threads. Over the last few years it has grown and when the opportunity came up to buy Lace Inspirations, I knew it was the right time to expand even further.

Due to my remote dwelling, I thought it best to start a web shop as I can not see myself traveling around Australia. It would get too expensive to have to hop on the boat all the time and as I work part time, I can not take a lot of time off. Creating this Shop has been hard work and I would like to take this opportunity to thank my brother for the huge help he gave me in creating it.

I hope you find something you like to buy and if there is something special you need, just ask and I shall certainly see what I can do. I may not be able to help but who knows, it never hurts to ask. I look forward to hearing from you and don't forget to check out my facebook page to keep updated on whats happening at Lace Worx.
