      Mette Lüttensee was born in Altengamme in 1804. The father was a weaver. At the age of 13 she was given the task of practicing cross-stitch patterns on 18 gauge linen with black and purple sewing thread for the trousseau.

      Mette's daughter Gesche completed her magnificent sampler in 1844 (see GH 1844). Certainly crowned letters from the mother's childhood were unfashionable. So the alphabets became more swinging. Red-purple came to the fore next to black as a color. After the handkerchiefs with names came the darning and mending cloths , the practice cloths for buttonholes and the famous shirt fly pattern cloths.

      The exercise towels were finally followed by the making of the trousseau: "The name was embroidered in a straight line between rosettes, trees of life or angels on pillows, bed sheets, tablecloths, cradle covers, rain sheets. ..." Following the attitude towards death at the time, people embroidered their own death sheet early on. Also that of the future husband.

      "Don't weep for me, dear ones. I'm not dying for you. Why do you want to grieve. I'm in God's kingdom."

      Both scarves are illustrated in the book by Christiane Gädtgens*), she also provided the quotes.
      In the early 1980s, Evke Stobbe from Zollenspieker counted the samples of this and other cloths, drew them by hand, produced individual sheets with the motifs and called for them to be duplicated and used further.

      Thank you both.
      The two sample books are privately owned.
