Anyone make bobbin lace?

I have in the past. Too time consuming and slow

All 3 DDs made bobbin lace after we moved to this N Bucks village, where all the girls went to a flourishing Lace Club. Fantastic for presents for the Grannies! Their lace pillows and bags are in a distant corner of the loft now, but I remember how proud they were of their collections of bobbins.

Yes I did and still have all the kit. I loved it but found that I had to take my glasses off and squint at it with my nose on the pillow!

Problem is, what to do with the stuff.
