The chance purchase of a craft magazine from a hospital shop in 1998 introduced us to needle lace, we had grown up with bobbin lace but this craft was interesting to us ... we wanted to add a new dimension to our jewellery and needlework and this not only led to our braids, but also the dolls.

We bought a Viking-style wooden disk from the Woollen Mill at Treffiw, Wales and married this with a cherrywood lucet, completing the trio with a Marudai commissioned from a talented woodworking friend.
