From June 24-26, the 17th World Congress of OIDFA, the international organization for bobbin and needle lace, will take place in GR Exhibition and Convention Centre. Around 800 international participants are expected to join the congress.

You have a chance to see a whole range of lace exhibitions in Ljubljana and at the Slovenian lace making centres, as well as participate in several pre-congress courses starting with June 20 or attend a post-congress tour.

It is a unique opportunity to present and view lace of the highest standard from around the world and to talk to its creators, to learn new techniques and much more.

Because lace making has a long tradition in Slovenia, the OIDFA congress will get its own postage stamp.
