Gostovanje hrvatske čipke na Međunarodnom festivalu čipke u Vologdi rezultiralo je izrazitim uspjehom naših predstavnika. Lepoglavska je čipka očarala i posjetitelje i stručan žiri te osvojila prvo mjesto na natječaju “Zlatni batić” za najbolji aturoski rad profesionalne čipkarice. Na natječaju su sudjelovale mnogobrojne čipke iz čak 10 zemalja (Europa, Amerika i Australija) i 36 regija Rusije. Vrijedna nagrada u obliku zlatnog batića dodijeljena je Zadrugi Lepioglavske čipke. S obzirom na sudionike iz cijeloga svijeta opravdano se može reći da je Lepoglavska čipka na samom vrhu svjetskog čipkarstva. Zahvaljujući ovako zapaženom rezultatu Lepoglavska čipka postala je stalni izložbeni primjerak u Muzeju čipke u Vologdi.
Druga predstavnica iz Hrvatske, Paška čipka izazvala je također veliki interes. Specifičnost i težina izrade ove čipke na iglu impresionirala mnoge prisutne, stoga će još ove godine i ona biti uvršetna u stalni postav Muzeja čipke u Vologdi. Sudjelovanje predstavnika hrvatske čipke na Međunarodnom festivalu čipke u Vologdi omogućilo je Ministarstvo kulture RH, Ured kulture regije Vologda, Veleposlanstvo Ruske Federacije u Hrvatskoj, Zadarska županija i grad Lepoglava.
