Samplers are so much a part of our history. They tell so much about the one who stitched it, their family, their thoughts. Are their samplers filled with flowers or mourning. Do they enjoy stitching or is it something that they are required to do each day. What colors do they like or in the case of some girls did they have a benefactor who provided their thread for them. Some day they will be looking at my samplers and getting to know me by what I stitched with needle and thread.
