Barbara Brooks

Barbara started lace making in 1985 whilst still working as a Police Officer. After a few years she began teaching a small class of children at her son’s junior school. Mainly Lace was started in the early 1990s. Barbara began teaching at the shop shortly after.

Barbara completed the City and Guilds Diploma and became an Outside Verifyer for the “Guild” . She continued with this until most of the centres stopped the lace making course. It was then that Mainly Lace set up as an independent centre for bobbin lace courses.
