Martha Ludewig 1898
Most of the school samplers stitched in Germany were worked on a piece of rough fabric. Selvages helped the teacher with cutting. Red and blue yarns were available to the student.
Now, care, creativity in the selection of the alphabet and the borders, as well as diligence were required. At the end of the school year the work was marked.
Martha's sampler is part of the large collection of Margit Guerrein from Berlin.
