OIDFA Congress 2023 will be a hybrid Congress held August 4-6, 2023, with on-site activities in Nova Gorica (Slovenia) and Gorizia (Italy), sister cities which share the Italian/Slovenian border.  For more city information click here.  4 days of classes precede the Congress and a 5 day tour immediately follows the Congress. 

The virtual Congress consisting of 9 classes and 9 lectures will be held the week before and the week after the activities at the on-site Congress. Bulletin 4 includes detailed information.

In 2018 the Congress was held in Zaandam, Netherlands.  The Conference book, "We Love Lace," contains over 60 lace designs in color completed in a variety of techniques with prickings and details. Patterns are appropriate for a variety of levels.  This book would make a lovely gift.  Book measures 8.5" x 12."
