Miriam Olšavská


Member of Bucks Point Bobbin Lace Club Krajné.

“I come from Krajné and started bobbin lace making there in 2014, when the Centre of Traditional Culture in Myjava (region in western Slovakia) organised a series of courses to teach Bucks point lace from the highlands of Myjava. The courses were initially for beginners, but afterwards they continued for advanced lace makers. I have been a member of Bobbin Lace Club Krajné (Klub krajnianskej paličkovanej čipky) since 2016, where we strive to preserve the bobbin lace tradition of our village under the supervision of experienced lace makers from Brezová pod Bradlom. I showcase Bucks point lace making on different occasions – festivals and traditional fairs. I put my effort not only into the reconstruction and preservation of old bobbin lace patterns, but also to use Bucks point lace in contemporary garments and jewellery.”
