Whether educated in the home, at a formal school, or even in an orphanage, learning to stitch and embroider was an integral part of the education of girls of all classes. One of the standards in this education was the creation of a needlework sampler, often following the basic pattern created by a teacher, but also infused with the creativity of the child and her surroundings. We’ll look at a variety of sampler types and embroidered pictures, their history, and their influence and place in the lives of adult women.
