Please note the excellent article on Estonian lace in the 2013 OIDFA Bulletin vol 31 no 1. I’m not sure what is happening on the 2nd, but the few announcements of this event that I could find on the web say it starts on the 2nd. Note the close connection with Northern European lace centers in their agenda.
