2nd lace|heart|art Challenge and Online Exhibition of Handmade Bobbin Lace in Colour
In 2019 edition, the theme of the giving heart is symbolized with a bouquet of flowers.
Simple lace tape outlines the heart shape, flowers grow from the bottom of the heart and blossom with love. They are wrapped with a bow and offered as a present to the rest of the world, with joy and gratitude for creativity, lace and life.
While the simple heart outline is provided, the blossoms are open to creative interpretation. We invite all lacemakers to fill the pattern with colours and textures, and create a truly original flower arrangement. Simple or elaborate, we will accept all heart bouquets, and include them in our celebration.
Read about the 2nd lace|hear|art Challenge here and download the free pattern with instructions here. The instruction is provided for fibre as well as wire media. We encourage everybody to try both materials and explore their potential in colours.

We are looking forward to receiving your lace|heart|art #2 entries before February 14th, 2019!
