Predsednik Borut Pahor

OIDFA Congress 2016 is under the honorary patronage of his excellency Mr. Borut Pahor, the President of the Republic of Slovenia.

In June 2016, Slovenia will be celebrating lace when it hosts the 17th World Lace Congress of OIDFA — the international organization for bobbin and needle lace. The Congress will take place from 24 to 26 June, 2016 at Gospodarsko razstavišče — the Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre. This will be a unique opportunity to present and view lace of the highest standard from around the world and to talk to its creators, to learn new techniques, to renew old friendships and business ties, as well as to create new ones.
