Tuesday, 28 August 2012
From 4pm to 7pm on Wednesday, 29 August 2012, you are invited by Amy Finkel to view both floors of the gallery filled with over 75 antique samplers from America and Europe, reperesenting schoolgirl needlework at its most interesting. There will be samplers priced under $2000 and of course will also have some very fine and rare examples that will range upwards. Whether you are a collector or an enthusiast, there will be much to see and enjoy. Light refreshments served.
I visited Amy some years ago when I was in Philadelphia and was completely enchanted by her and her beautifully chosen collection of samplers in store in the old part of town. Here you can see just a few examples.
And if you are unable to fly out, then you can always enjoy browsing her gallery on line - simply click here to visit.
