Some of you will know that the wonderful textile museum at Carrow House in Norwich is closed pending expensive repairs to the building. Volunteer Philippa Sims has set out to raise funds by charting two small samplers, one of which you can see here. Jessy Lambert was born in Norwich in 1820 and there are no less than five of her samplers in the Carrow House collection. It is quite astonishing that tucked in amongst the homely flowers, houses, windmill, deer and peacocks is a .... camel! You can purchase a download of the sampler with Jessy's history for £7 - simply click here. All profits go to Carrow House. Because I don't see your purchases - the PayPal goes through direct to Philippa - it may take a little longer than usual before you have your link, please bear with us. You have our gratitude.
