Embroidered Stories

These samplers tell the wonderful stories of the creators who were most often very young girls. This collection of 70 samplers is a touching personal record of children’s lives, made by hand in their formative years and recording the things most dear to them. The charming sampler below was likely inspired by the Queen's Zebra gifted to her by George III in 1762.

I was delighted to learn that the Embroidered Stories exhibition will still be on when I'm in Edinburgh in April!
