Just a short post to let you all know that in the early hours of 2nd of September, the 400-year old farm building 'Lötschmüllerhof' burnt to the ground. Amazingly nobody got hurt and even the oxen that could not be freed in time survived the inferno without a scratch! The best proof that angels watch over stubborn oxen too. Luckily, the apartment we live in has very little damage. However, our lovely land-lord and land-lady (our additional parents) lost everything, but have now taken up residency in one of the other apartments. Not exactly home, but still theirs. Making sure that they are okay takes presidency over running Märchenhaftes Sticken. I am sure you will all understand. However, workshops and courses will run as normal. Maybe interrupted for an important phone call or emptying out the washing machine (my small Miele is the only one functioning at the moment). Here are pictures of what the farmstead looks like at the moment. Video footage and pictures of the inferno can be found online when you type 'Bad Bayersoien' into the news section of Google. We have been very impressed with the many men and women fire fighters, neighbours, red cross and THW who came so unselfishly to our aid. And so a new chapter begins. But with this amazing group of people I am sure we will do it!
