OIDFA's Work & Study Groups publish meticulously researched and beautifully illustrated books on lace topics of various countries.  Books may be purchased from the OIDFA site here.  

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 classes and lectures will be held the week before and the week after the activities at the onsite Congress. Watch for Bulletin 4 for more 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."
