Stay home - make lace

#stayhomemakelace

Since the announcement of the pandemic caused by the coronavirus COVID-19, the attention has turned to daily monitoring of the virus's prevalence, changes in ordinances, laws and bans, which makes us all restless. There is also a lack of cultural component. Physical contacts during pandemic can endanger our health.
However, we humans are social beings, we need connections, we need culture. We want to show that despite everything we can take a step forward. Towards connections, communication and culture.

During this emergency situation, we invite all lacemakers, designers of lace patterns, as well as creators of graphic representations of lace to create products themed "Corona lace" to express feelings in times of isolation.

Size, colour and lacemaking technique are left...
