I found the photo when I browsed a new website called Danske Billeder where you can find a lot of old photos. After I joined the global knitting world, Ravelry, I have been in contact with several knitters, who have ancestors from - or have been in Denmark, and I believe they can find some very interesting information on this website.
The room for needlework was at the top floor. And I was so excited when I found this photo from the local newspaper in 1965. It is a picture of the annual exhibition of needlework and my sisters and I definitely have stuff displayed here. Perhaps one of the nighties hanging on the blackboard.
The dolls' clothes in front were made from the most popular fabric for fifty years, I think, a soft check blue and white cotton and every school must have bought a kilometre of it every year.
I still like the fabric very much, but I do not know if you can still buy it. It was used for children´s clothes as well. Here is a photo from my Gyldendals Sy og Strikkebog from 1940. I can still feel my neck tickle when I see the photo of the little girl fitting the unfinished dress.
I found this little doll´s dress at a flea market. It hangs on my wall next to this photo of me, aged three.
