As part of the work for the two forthcoming Needleprint publications which document a world class private needlework and sampler collection, we are creating an illustrated 'Dictionary of Early Bands and Spots' to help us describe early band and spot samplers succinctly so that others can understand what we are talking about when we discuss different samplers. There is a fairly finite repertoire of bands across many samplers - we have even compiled a Top 10 of the most loved sampler bands and maybe we can run through those at some point. So we are looking for names for bands and it would be such a pity if we were to choose the names ourselves and not allow anyone else to join in the fun. So here is your chance to name a band and be acknowledged in the book. The names need to be descriptive, succinct and memorable. Here are the first two bands for you to think about.
