That evening was dedicated to teachers and students. Each teacher showed her designs or collection pieces. It is the time and place to exchange on different techniques; otherwise teachers do not have a chance to see what others do. It is also an opportunity to students to see what is going on in other classes. That evening, as you can see on the above picture, was very popular. Here is a little glance of it.
Jay was presenting her metallic pieces of lace, Louise Colgan her contemporary lace, she invited us to buy a Hensel production DVD where she propose a 3 hours Milanese technique class (you can find all information about it at the “new books” section). Nathalie, of course, exhibited the famous Brioude tallies.

Why this many people? It’s Sally cold pressing laces (with a pastry roller!)
My stand was separated in 2 parts: my own Valenciennes lace designs and beside, antique laces, Valenciennes as well. As detail, the last necklace, Valenciennes of course, created especially for the convention.
