The show embroidery "Plauener Spitze " is a museum on the outskirts of the city of Plauen.
At a presentation in the original workshop that includes historical embroidery machines, visitors get to witness how the famous lace from Plauen was made during the city’s boom.

The exhibit is therefore interesting not only to those who appreciate needlework and beautiful textiles; it is also exciting for fans of technology, who have the opportunity here to experience first hand how the complex technology works.
