Royal School Of Needlework Sampler Exhibition * January - July 2014 * Booking Essential

Bryna Black from the Royal School of Needlework emailed me this week to tell me about their upcoming sampler exhibition tours.

The sampler exhibition will show examples of the RSN’s Collection of samplers in all techniques. Bryna tells me that: it will include the traditional letters and numbers samplers starting in the 18th century, map samplers, pattern samplers and technical stitch samplers in techniques such as metal thread embroidery. There will also be samplers in different formats such as made into rolls comprising sections featuring both embroidery stitches and sewing techniques that were popular in the late 19th and early 20th century for girls’ education. There will also be examples of patterns and designs from the RSN relating to samplers produced by the RSN over its history.
To see the samplers you need to join a tour. The tours are at 11am and 2pm during the last week of every month, booking in advance is essential. Click here for more details and to book your tour.
