Special

School samplers made by little girls are very often labelled as "cute", "sweet", "pretty" and always endearing. The first creative stitches on "perforated" fabric with a thick needle and thick cotton thread. Individually and in various stages of technical skill. They are the last "witnesses" by the end of the 19th century, until this kind is completely "banished" from German school teaching.
