The Selbu church, the oldest part dates back to 1183, but it has been expanded and renovated several times since then. One Sunday in the winter 1857–58 Marit Olsdatter and her sister came to this church wearing the new mittens and thus attracting the congregation's attention (which embarrassed the sisters). Soon Marit was asked by a lot of women to teach them the new knitting.
