How to buy to send to Portugal?
Hello Maria Eliana,
I answered your comments via email. But unfortunately the emails came back as undeliverable. So here is my answer.
1. You can order the book “Basic Principles of Schwalm Whitework” directly via email. It has a price of EURO 29.90 and in addition is the shipping price of EURO 3.96 to Portugal. If it is okay for you, I will send a direct PayPal invoice. PayPal also accepts credit card payments.
Please tell me.
2. There are some different books with many stitches. Do you know of square eyelets? Then I would suggest the “Limetrosen I” book (35,00 € + shipping), or do you want to work openwork? Then I would suggest “Openwork Needleweaving Patterns” (29,90 € + shipping)
If there is any other question, please mail me.
I have a copy of this book and a kit I bought at the Schwalm museum in Schwalmstadt.
I have a question regarding getting the transfer ink out of the linen.
The book says to soak it overnight then to “cook” it.
Could you please explain what you mean by “cook it”
If it is easier to explain in German my husband can translate for me.
the blue of the pre-transferred linen is mostly very persistant. You have to soak it and to wash it out under rubbing with only lukewarm water before boiling, because boiling makes the colour permanent. The heat of boiling later is only for shrinking the linen.
