This time festival organizers have prepared national exhibition and big concert for the guests.

Their great-grandmothers taught them to embroider. In their historical homeland, in Belarus, such towels were a part of everyday life, today embroider turned out to be a hobby that helps to bind generations together.
Nina Bruylo, a member of the Belarusian diaspora: "These things are made by our hands, Belarusian hands. Some of the things were made by me, others by my sisters. Now we preserve all the handicrafts. There is the tablecloth that was weaved by my grandmother".
