And Now They are Five!

Following up on the recent post Four Little Maids from School Are We - Julia Arnold has discovered another member of the school, Anne Hillman, who stitched her sampler in 1806. This sampler is almost identical with Elizabeth Tatham's of 1806 in the Goodhart Collection at Montecute House.
Eagle-eyed Julia sent me this scan of the sampler image which comes from the Joan Eyles' Collection and is featured in the 2004 Witney Antiques' Catalogue 'On This Fair Sampler Does My Needle Write'. Be sure to watch the
Witney Antiques Website for details of their upcoming exhibition on school girl samplers.


  1. That`s awesomely exciting Jacqueline!! Wouldn`t it be great to have them all together under one roof? I`d love to see a book on them too!!!
