In the special exhibition, the museum is showing embroidered sayings on household textiles from 1870 to 1930 from the collection of Elfi Connemann from Celle until February 11, 2024. Lorraine Mootz loaned the entire collection to the museum. We visited the exhibition on November 20th, 2023.

In December 1995 we visited the traveling exhibition “Samplers from Altmark and Prignitz” in Havelberg. As part of a joint project by the Altmark Museum Association, the historian Corrie Leitz, with the collaboration of many other museums in the Altmark and Prignitz, developed a traveling exhibition that made this beautiful part of our cultural heritage accessible to a broad public from 1995 to 1997. Following on from this, the Altmärkisches Museum is presenting this rich treasure until September 17, 2023 and enriching it with numerous “application examples”. Loans come from the museums in Osterburg, Havelberg, Genthin and Diesdorf, according to the museum's website. We barely made it and left on September 14th to Stendal. We were thankfully given permission to take photos.

On August 26, 2023 we visited the special exhibition with samplers and embroideries from the Angelika Salzwedel collection. As luck would have it, I met a nice customer. more
