Samplers International * Benton County Museum, Oregon * Until 30 April 2011 & Catalogue

Thanks to generous support from the Sampler Consortium, Benton County Historical Society are exhibiting a collection of samplers stitched between 1747 and 2011 from around the world, including France - see the example above.
Above you can see a delightful Quaker sampler. Members of the Sampler Consortium have conducted historical and genealogical research into all of the historic samplers in the exhibition.

The catalogue costs $25.95 including postage if you are in the USA or $35 including postage if you are in Europe, Canada or Mexico.
