Colonial Williamsburg Samplers now On-Line

Thank you to Mary Woods who yesterday sent me this lovely ePostcard of stitching hands from Colonial Williamsburg to tell me that the Foundation had now put their collection of 22 samplers on line. The collection includes the 1799 Ackworth School medallion sampler worked by Jane Stead To see them click here. Type: Sampler into the search box.


  1. Thank you for the lovely picture postcard. Unfortunately, I don't find the link to be working at the moment. Karmen

  2. Link seems to be busted...


  3. Thank you all very much for letting me know about the link not working. My apologies for your frustrations - it worked OK when I tested it this morning outside of the blog - I put it in the blog and blithely went off for the day to do Christmas shopping! I have a new link which works inside the blog now.

  4. It is beautiful to be able to see the samplers so far away in my own home. Thank you for the lovely image too. Jane
