Exhibitions, Workshops, Lectures, 
Library displays and talks, Sampler sharing

An exhibition of historic samplers from our Collection will be on display.  We invite members with historic samplers to contact our Gallery Coordinator if they would like their sampler to be considered for exhibition.
Members who have stitched a sampler of their own or inspired by another are invited to send an image to be considered for the exhibition.  Space will of course determine how much we can display.

Sampler sharing days are also planned when you can bring your sampler, tell us what you know of its story and learn from others.
