Isn't it sad so many of the crafts that were once made by hand, are being lost to this generation. When I traveled to Belgium a few years ago with my sweet hubby, we visited a shop that still had hand made lace.
She told us it takes eight years to learn how to make fine lace.
She also told us the younger generation is not interested in making lace, so many of the shops sell imports.
Some of the lace was so amazing and very beautiful.
This shop was closed, so we could only see what was displayed in the window.
Maybe one day there will be a resurgence of interest in making fine handmade lace.
Have a beautiful week :-)
