Haandarbejdets Fremme calendars etc.

When I was a child, my mother was sewing crossstitch. I found it normal, since I come from a family, where we did everything ourself by hand. Decorations for christmas three, bycicles, handicraft and reparations of clothes.

One day my mother told me, she was selling her old Haandarbejdets Fremme calendars (with cross stitch patterns) to a handicraft shop, and from the one day to the other, she was only offered half of the price of, what she could sell them for earlier. I offered to sell them on the internet and found out, it was a collecters item. So I started to sell them on danish websites and on Ebay.

Today my mother is 74 years old. Still sewing a little – tablecloths and name-patters with all the names of the family in a familythree etc.

I am  still selling the calendars from Haandarbejdets Fremme – and here I show, what I have for sale:

Saunakultur direkte ind fra gaden

Malmø kan noget, København ikke kan. Der kan man opleve havbad kombineret med cafe og saunakultur. Det kan København lære noget af.

Ribersborg Kallbadhus i Malmø var en fantastisk oplevelse. En 70-100 m lang gangbro fører os frem til det imponerende stort udseende badehus kunstværdigt udført i træ. Min første tanke var at det lignede en fæstning eller fængsel. Men det ser for charmerende ud til at være nogen af delene.
Inde toner en hyggelig cafe frem. Ved kassen betaler vi kr 130 for to besøgende. Hvis du vil betale med danske betaler du samme beløb som i Svenske, så det kan jlart betale sig at bruge svenske eller Visa.
Inde ad døren bliver vi mødt af omklædning til mænd hhv kvinder.
