13th Lace Festival Information
Registration form:

The 13th International Lace Festival celebrates the 110th anniversary of Halas lace.  Lacemakers, lace schools and associations, lace teachers and students are invited to exhibit their work, give demonstrations, and even sell their products. The weekend of April 20-22 is dedicated to the demonstrations, both to festival participants and to visitors to the Lace House. As part of the events, the organizers also request the loan of laces from collectors and makers – historical or original works. Items from around 1902 are especially desired to show the contemporary environment within which Halas lace was developed. Instructions and deadlines for the lace lending process (no more than 4 per person) can be found in the information sheet above.
