A Sampling of Samplers - History Is Fun

Social distancing got you in a crafty mood? Needle working might not be as broadly practiced today, but in the 17th-19th centuries, young girls learned needle working soon after they began learning the alphabet, and quite often earlier than they learned to write. While many extant samplers appear to...

At the end of last year a team of dedicated volunteers began digitising some of the many patterns and designs held in our collection. Although that work is now on hold for the time being due to the lockdown, it seems like a good time to share some of the images with you.

The first pack features 19th century charts for various alphabets and the second pack contains a series of hand charted patterns taken from folk embroideries. The charts would originally have been used for techniques such as berlin woolwork and other cross-stitch or counted thread methods. They also lend themselves to crochet, knitting, beading and more.

We are offering these as a free resource for personal use in the hope that they will inspire you to experiment with the designs and get some inspiration for your next project. To view the patterns click on the link below and you will be taken to our website where you can access links to the corresponding folder on our resources Google Drive. From there you can view or download the images. We’ll be uploading more packs of patterns and images over the next few weeks, so keep checking back for more inspiration.
