Lace Event Estonia: 20th Seto Lace Days – May 5-15, 2013

XX Seto Pitsipäävä  – 20th Seto Lace Days
Date: May 5th to May 15th, 2013
Place: Seto Farm Museum
Värska, Estonia
Time: 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Websites: www.visitestonia.com/en/seto-lace-days, http://www.setomuuseum.ee

The Seto farm museum has a wonderful collection of local folk items, especially costume and textiles. Information on the lace days is a little sparse, and I am not sure how much bobbin or needlelace might be expected, or what events are scheduled. I was able to find one explanation on the visitestonia website:

“The Seto Lace Days bring together handicraft enthusiasts from far and wide. Lacework techniques used in Seto handicrafts are showcased in workshops and exhibitions and visitors are taught how to implement them in contemporary handicraft. The culmination of the event each year is the judging of the competition entries. For visitors this is an excellent opportunity to try their own hand at the art and see the masters at work.”

Fees: for the museum, 2.00 EUR adults, 1.00 EUR students, 1.00 EUR pensioners. Guided tours in English 5.00 EUR, other foreign languages 25.00 EUR.
It seems that the lace events are free, not sure of the details.
