Handwerk at the Olma

Here are the ladies demonstrating their skills and the beautiful results. The first is using a fragile silver ribbon to embroider the motif for a cap like the one below. The lacemaker is using a shuttle and a double pointed knitting needle to make the collar. She showed me her moves but she was quick and it looked more complicated than I could pick up in a demonstration. We had fun visiting with them as I practiced my Deutsch with ein Bisschen English thrown in.
