Free Giveaway - Ann Trump Pin from In The Company of Friends

Ann Trump who was a scholar at Ackworth School from 1793 to 1797 had 4 of her samplers gifted to the school in 1965 by a gentleman who, in his turn, had been given the samplers by an old lady many years ago. Two of Ann's samplers are darning samplers, and two are medallion samplers - one monochrome, and the other a gorgeous long polychrome dated 1797. Also at Ackworth was Ann's older sister, Lydia, who left a simple alphabet and number sampler. The girls were offspring of John Henry and Ann Trump of Bristol and later Keynsham. John Henry was a baker. To celebrate the first gathering at Ackworth School in 2006, In The Company of Friends made this charming pin based upon motifs on Ann's monochrome sampler. And this is the pin you can win in the free draw this week. Simply click on the angel at the bottom of this post to enter.

Too long out of print. Ann Trump's lovely, horizontal format Ackworth School Sampler of 1797 is now back as a download.
The draw is open to all - and as usual just click on the flying angel to enter. The winner will be announced next Monday 19 September. Good Luck!
