Dear Izborsk people and the guests of “Izborsk” museum!

We would like to invite you to come to the opening of the exhibition of laces “A beautiful house” on February 13, 2015 at 13.00 to merchant Shvedov’s house (Pechorskaya str., 32).  

You will see laces, created by women living in Izborsk and its vicinities. Of great interest is a 1922 collection of samples of laces which used to belong to a student of Pechory school Zinaida Verkhoustinskaya, a daughter of Father Illiy, the priest of St. Nikolas church in Tailovo.   

In 1920 – 1940 inschoolsofPechorydistrictgirlsweretaught handicraft, including lace-making. Women and girls used to get together and share patterns for lace-making. On festive occasions exhibitions of laces created by masters living in Pechory district were organized.

We will be very happy to see you in Izborsk!
