Yale University Art Gallery Sampler Collection On-Line

We don't normally think of universities as sources for samplers - but here we are at Yale and they have 13 samplers on line including this lovely darned pattern sampler from Westtown School by Sarah Pugh dated 1813.
Another fabulous item is this German sampler of 1771, rich in biblical motifs and decorated alphabets
The sampler above is a US sampler stitched by Elizabeth Jahrams in 1827.
And there is even one from the UK - by Frances Darlington, thought to be stitched around 1800. To see the entire collection just click here.
