It is always so very exciting to see sisters of samplers I know. This sampler certainly had my heart racing when I saw how closely related it was to the lovely sampler in the Micheál and Elizabeth Feller Collection (F450). The sampler above is Lot 314 for sale on 30 November 2013 at Great Western Auctions. Although the sampler is not signed, the reverse is inscribed with family history: The sampler was sewn by Elizabeth Haddon began by her in the year 1770 being then aged 8 years. Its estimate is £350 - £450. Click here for more details of the auction. Below you can see F450 from the Micheál and Elizabeth Feller Collection.
What is even more wonderful, is that you can stitch a copy of this sampler as it is one of two samplers charted in the book of the Micheál and Elizabeth Feller Collection Volume II.
