The work shows a young woman wearing a dress holding up two bobins while she places a pin in the pillow on which she is making a her bobbin lace. At 24.5 cm x 21 cm, this work is the smallest and one of the most abstract and unusual works. The girl is between a white wall because the artist wanted to eliminate the rest of distractions from the center drawing. A lot of specialists says that the lacemaker would be somebody from his family, maybe one of his olders daughters. Another of the laters additions were the curly hair of the girl and one of the most important elements, the yellow of her jacket.

She is sitting in a piece of forniture which was used to the lace making and his tapestry seems to have something in common to the one which appears in Vermeer’s Love Letter and Astronomer. We can observe in the picture bellow that the table could be raised and lowered by inserting a peg in the differents holes that are in the dark part of the table leg.
