Stories behind the Stitches: Schoolgirl Samplers of the 18th and 19th Centuries * A Fitzwilliam Museum On-Line Exhibition
Leena A Rana, Connecting with Collections Intern, at The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge (seen in the centre of the picture belong) has created an on-line sampler exhibition featuring the work of 8 girls of modest means. She started researching the samplers in January 2013, and was eager to discover information about the makers, the schools they attended and the function of needlework in these institutions.
