  1. Hi Bevin! I'm an art history student at the University of Chicago, studying textiles made by medieval nuns. I'm planning to come to Germany this coming winter to photograph textiles for an upcoming paper. Kloster Marienberg is definitely on my list, as is the Hanover-Kestner collection -- I was wondering if you knew of any other collections of white-work/early medieval embroidery (most of my work is c. 1300). Is Kloster Lune, for example, worth a trip?
