The Europe of lacemakers was invited to a large international gathering, organized by the association of lacemakers. Through demonstrations and exhibitions, the event makes it possible to show all this ancestral know-how which continues, is modernized and enriched.
Sixty-ten lacemakers, ie fourteen groups, from Spain but also from the four corners of France and accompanied by six lace-making traders took over the sports hall. For Véronique Long, the president of the association and her dynamic team: “This meeting every two years is a source of exchange, know-how and the sharing of original ideas. We are delighted to receive the lacemakers in this place which is particularly suited to our Couvige.
