Items marked with   *  are available in travel bobbins.  The design may be simplified to fit the smaller  3 1/2 inch length.  Just specify travel on the order blank.  All Bucks/Travel size are $7.00 each.  Add $1.00 if you want them dyed.

This photo shows the average lengths of the travel and the full sized Midlands bobbins.


Bone Choices

Wire: Gold, Green, Red, Silver (non tarnish)
Enamel paint colors:
Metallic: Burgundy, Emerald, Gold, Grape, Mint, Sapphire, Silver, Teal
Non-metallic: Black, Pacific Blue, Light Blue, Pink, Yellow
Any of the bone styles can be dyed. This adds extra steps to the process and therefore adds $1.00 to the price. Matching dye coloration at a later date is next to impossible. If you'd like a pair matched, please get them at the same time. Irregularities in the bone may prevent a total match, but two bobbins done in the same dye bath are usually fairly close.
Dye colors: Black, Bronze Rose, Navy Blue, Hunter Green, Teal.
