Two dutch ladies Joke Visser and An Moonen in St. Marie-aux-Mines, with two beautiful collections to admire.
Joke showed a part of her collection, antique counted cross stitch samplers made by schoolchildren from the Netherlands, 18, 19 and 20 century. Young girls had to practise their embroidery skills, and made samplers at school.
An Moonen has an unique collection of dutch antique quilts from the 18, 19 and 20 century. They were exposed in the theatre of Sainte Marie aux Mines. Dieuwke and I visited this exhibition every day. PHOTOS DUTCH QUILTS AND PHOTOS CROSS STITCH
