So today we strolled around St Gallen some more and saw the new display of the Lace Museum.
As always there was amazing stuff on display, and the fact that st gallen was the lace capitol is very much seen.
Sneaky photography once again ;)
these are lace pieces hand made
as are these children s bodices
some religious wear, also very old
also some pre machine lace, apparently on large machine replace 40 lace makers, go figure.
cute night gown
dresses made from St Galler lace, I loved the ball gown and the one in the back of this image.
here it is from the front
the yellow dress
some of the other dresses made with this fabric
the back of the ball gown
the cute pink one
the other one I liked, its so puffy :)
and has such cute details
this is the textiles library, it was closed :(
and this is one of those machines that replace so many women making lace, its pretty big but 40 people would take up more room I guess.
Anyways its a museum worth visiting if you enjoy textiles.
until next time
