The entry in the nationwide register of intangible cultural heritage shows initial successes in the fight against being forgotten.
Small but very fine exhibitions are being created in many places of Germany. As a result, Schwalm whitework is becoming more aware of citizens again. The population’s interest is aroused. Demonstrations motivate one to pick up the embroidery needle themself.

Small exhibitions have the advantage that they are easier to set up. Short routes to the presentation locations make travel easier. This attracts visitors from the respective region.

This is also the case in Homberg an der Ohm.
The long-time embroiderer Inge Christ made her exhibits available there for a special exhibition in the museum “Altes Brauhaus“, Brauhausgasse 10.

Ms. Christ will usually be present during opening hours to demonstrate and explain the Schwalm whitework technique.

It is open every Sunday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. until July 28th. Further appointments can be made by calling 06633 5372 or by email:

So if you don’t live too far away and want to admire outstanding original exhibits, going to Homberg is recommend. Admission is free.
