Stitch by Stitch Lace
Life and Work of the Willingshausen Schwalm Whiteworker Anna Elisabeth Grein

In more than 50 years of teaching, given in countless courses, Ms. Grein has ensured that the knowledge and skills of the unique Schwalm whitework are passed on. Both the lessons and her striking designs based on traditional motifs and exhibitions of her perfect embroidery have made her known far beyond Schwalm.

Now Heidrun Merk, 1st chairwoman of the Holzburg Museum Association, honors the work of Anna Elisabeth Grein in her latest publication (text: German).

After introductory chapters about whitework, she gives a brief outline of her life and then presents 30 selected, very different masterful embroideries in pictures and short word descriptions on 30 pages

The volume “Stich für Stich Spitze” is available from Ms. Merk for a price of €12 plus postage (contact:
