What's New
Details of our latest bobbins and other news.

17 January 2018 *** IMPORTANT ***
We expected there may have been a few problems when we uploaded the new website, but we didn't think they would be as disastrous as they turned out. When the new website was published on Sunday (14th), the code used was too advanced for the outdated legacy webserver we have been using for nearly 20 years. The website did not load properly and we were left with a very basic Home page.
It was therefore necessary for us to change webhosts which we have done. The new website should work on all current popular web browsers.
There are still one or two problems of which we are aware (the most noticeable of which is the missing logo on each page header, but this is not essential to the working of the site).

If you have our website bookmarked, please check that it has the correct URL
www.winslowbobbins.com and NOT www.auax56.dsl.pipex.com.
Also if you have our email as auax56@dsl.pipex.com you should change it to
info@winslowbobbins.com .

When the change of webhost was made we were required to switch our DNS nameservers. We have been advised that when this change was being made (between 4.30pm on Tuesday 16th and 11.15am on Wednesday 17th January - UK time) it is more than likely that any emails sent during this time will have been lost.

We've been busy little bees over the Christmas and New Year period and have at long last completed the update to our Website. It is rare that such major revisions go without a hitch, but if everything goes to plan we hope that when the new code is uploaded everything will work as it is supposed to. If there are any serious glitches we will revert to the old site if we can. We have tested the site using the most popular web browsers but should you experience any problems, come across any glaring errors or find missing links please let us know.

January 2018
As part of the update we have added this year's Mothering Sunday and Easter bobbins to the Current Commemoratives page.

3 December 2017
On 27 November HRH Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle announced their engagement. As it was less than a week before the Christmas Lace Fair at Cranmore Park we were very busy preparing for the event. Still, we managed to produce some commemorative bobbins to take to the Fair but we didn't have any time to update the website - until now. Details, as usual, are on the Current Commemoratives page.

20 November 2017
Congratulations to HM Queen Elizabeth and HRH Prince Philip who today celebrate their Platinum (70th) Wedding Anniversary. To commemorate this wonderful achievement we have produced a bobbin. For those of you who choose spangled bobbins we have a special spangle with platinum coloured Swarovski crystal pearl beads. Find out more on the Current Commemoratives page.

----------------------------------

November 2017
Just realised that we didn't add our New Year 2018 bobbin to our list of Current Commemoratives last month. This has now been rectified.

----------------------------------

October 2017
Our new eight bobbin set, 'Diets of the Week' is a parody on the 'Days of the Week' rhyme. It should have been added last month but time got the better of us. Still, better late than never. You can see full details on the Painted Sets page.

----------------------------------

September 2017
We had hoped to have rolled out our new website this month at the start of our new business year, but it is taking more time than we anticipated.

Since September 2010 we have kept the prices of our bobbins the same, absorbing all the increases in our costs. However we have now come to the point where we can no longer do this as our current prices are unsustainable.  Consequently, it is with regret that, for the first time in seven years, you will see an increase our prices.

It is at this time of the year we add six new 'Wise Owl' sayings and the link will take you to the relevant page to view the new additions.
Our
Current Commemoratives page has details of the recently introduced Battle of Passchendaele Centenary bobbin along with our Christmas 2017 bobbin.

We have tried to check all the changes on the website resulting from these new additions but no doubt some mistakes may have slipped through the net. If you come across any mistakes or experience any problems, errors or failed links please let us know so that we may try and rectify them.
