OIDFA is an international lace group with membership open to anyone with an interest in bobbin or needle lace.

OIDFA’s activities reflect its international focus. The biennial Congresses have been held since 1982. The Congress enables lacemakers from all over the world to meet, exhibit their lace, exchange ideas, and impart knowledge about their craft.

The quarterly Bulletin contains articles and news. The Work and Study Groups conduct research and publish beautiful books on lace topics with an international perspective.

Since the USA members of OIDFA are widespread, OIDFA-USA is sponsoring Virtual Lectures and classes throughout the year. Watch this site for updates.

The next Congress will be

22 July - 20 August, 2023,

virtual and on-site, with classes and tours before and afterwards.
