I have been asked many times over the years. Do you make Grandmother bobbins? For the those who do not know this is a tiny bobbin inside, a small bobbin, inside another standard sized bobbin! My answer has always been No, sorry, too tricky  These notoriously difficult, and  time consuming, bobbins have always eluded me. Today I cracked it! I think I have now passed my bobbin making apprenticeship!!!!!! 

Prices and web link coming soon.Image attachment

Congratulations on your great achievement! And for continuing to make these lovely tools!

These bobbin's are a must have.

Oh wow I would love one or perhaps a pair but like my glass bobbins it/they would probably be for show only. Thank you for your perseverance Chris as it is a thing of beauty.

I have several ‘mother and babe’ bobbins, but the ‘grandmother’ one is now on my ‘must have’ list. Please post on FB when they go on sale!
