Rich River Lacemakers flew lacemaking expert Ethel Zuccolotto from Sydney for three days of expert teaching thanks to a $750 community grant from Campaspe Shire.
Ms Zuccolotto tutored the 15 women, who travelled from as far as Mildura and Swan Hill, from Tuesday to yesterday.
Rich River Lacemakers founder Trina McInerney, who donated her backyard to the workshop, said it was great to have someone of Ms Zuccolotto’s ilk in Echuca.
‘‘Ethel is a quality lace-making teacher,’’ Mrs McInerney said.
‘‘There are very few like her in Australia.
