The Schwenkfelder Sampler Collection

One of the places I'd really love to visit is the Schwenkfelder Sampler Collection. It is after my own heart - put together with local donations and inclusive. It has not been edited on the lines of a beauty parade, but is an honest document source of the entire cross-section of Schwenkenfelder samplers stitched in the area through the 18th and 19th centuries. More collections should take note and copy. Admission is free and the Heritage Centre is open Tuesdays through Sundays with late night opening till 8pm on Thursday - how wonderful is that? Just click here for more details and to see for yourself.

  1. Bravo for this! Candace Perry, curator of collections at the Schewnkfelder is a delightful person who tends these pieces as a labor of love. Anyone who goes to visit will not be disappointed!
