How were bed quilts sewn in the olden days?
Pommern sailmakers show the techniques of traditional sailmaking, both Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 5 pm.
In 1984 some elderly seamen, who had been sailing on square riggers themselves, started to sew sails to the museum ship Pommern which is anchored in the western Mariehamn. They also started teaching a new generation of sailmakers, and since then the tradition of traditional sailmaking has been continued.
