Oberhundem lies about 100 kilometres south-west of Dortmund. There you will find in an old half-timbered rectory built in 1685 the Embroidery Museum. This is a beautiful setting indeed for pieces collected from around the world by Henriette Steinacker. Here are examples of cross stitch, satin stitch or Plattstickerei, Richelieu work and Hedebo all worked on clothing, wall hangings and table linen. Noteworthy examples are a pattern cloth in drawn thread work from the year 1790, French Hochstickerei from 1849, a nine-metre-long pronkerolle from Hengelo dated 1909 and Ayrshire work from Scotland. There are also many samplers.
