Friends - A Common Thread - Carol Humphrey * £25 €35 $50 Shipping Included

A follow-on from Quaker School Girl Samplers from Ackworth, in 2008 Carol Humphrey, Honorary Keeper of Textiles at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, authored this monograph on Quaker Samplers and stitching.
The wider world of Quaker stitched artefacts is addressed, in terms of schools, families and traditions.
There are some lovely Irish Quaker samplers.
The Quaker links to slavery are discussed.
As well as the famous Westtown globes and pinballs.
I am sorry this book is now sold.
