In August, Brazilian committee member Giulliana utilised Instagram Live to participate in an online lace event with a global twist! She organized an exchange with the Brazilian Bobbin lacemakers group Rendeiras da Vila, who are located on the east coast of Brazil. Due to Covid-19, HLP had to quickly adapt to using online technology like this, but it proved to be a great way to make links with other lacemakers globally. This live event was enjoyed by all of the participants and led to a cultural exchange of lace information and history between the two groups. Giulliana said “I really enjoyed making contact with this Brazilian group. They are very active and greatly interested in the history of local women and their lace, just like our group.”
