I first saw this over the summer in Bruges. If I had to name one place in Europe where I expected to be bored, but was in fact fascinated, it was the lace museum in Bruges. They had a lot of examples of super-fine lace, as well as a history and examples of how it is made. The best part was that upstairs, they had women actually doing hand lace projects that you could go watch. I did not get a video of it but here are a few examples from the web that give the basic idea. Here is hand-making of lace:
