A stitch in time. Embroidery in the Spree Forest.

A stitch in time. Embroidery in the Spree Forest.

Embroidery is a celebrated art form in the Spree Forest. Colourful patterns are sewn into traditional Sorbian costumes one stitch at a time. Learn about the techniques at the Trachtenstickerei embroidery workshop in Burg and discover just how much patience is needed to produce these colourful garments. The traditional Sorbian costume, Sorbian dolls and small keepsakes are all produced by hand here. The embroidering machine is used to produce wall hangings, pictures and, on request, monograms too.
