Dear Sarah,

the convent at Wienhausen has been able to obtain a number of
showcasese, which were used during the expo at Hannover. These
are being used for showing a limited number of the wallhangings
which they have, on a permanent basis. Once a year, during a
periode of about a week following the Whitsun weekend, the
convent organises a tapestry week. During this periode the
exhibition is extended with the tapestries which are more fragile
in nature.
At the moment I'm considering a trip to Wienhausen to see the
tapestries and the building. Should I keep my eyes peeld for
something special on your behalf, than lett me konow off list.

Yours sincerely:

Johan Terlouw
