Hegyko, Hungary

One of the goals of the trip was to visit Mrs. Szigethy’s new lace exhibit and to introduce the Mad Tatter to Mrs. Szigethy. Goal achieved!

On Wednesday last week we traveled to Hegyko. It’s about a 20 minute drive from where we were staying in Tadten.

This is a new location for Mrs. Szigethy’s display. They purchased an old home in this village and completely renovated it. It’s located right next to the church in Hegyko.

When you enter the house, the first room on the left is set up as a bedroom.

We passed through a room that was once the kitchen in this old home. The next room included more information about the lace and how it is made. The bottom photo in this section talks about the different filling stitches used to fill the round circles of the doily.

The room in the back of the house is filled with a lifetime’s worth of needlework. It’s really quite amazing to see! Each piece is exquisitely made! One more beautiful than the next.

We’ll continue our visit tomorrow!

All the whitework and lace is beautiful. Am sure it would take a lifetime to make all those beautiful pieces

The hours upon hours of dedication it took to make all of those gorgeous pieces is mind blowing! So very nice to have a home set up to show them off.
