A glimpse into the Collection

Our collection includes a number of samplers. They illustrate a swathe of history, demonstrating both stitches and techniques used across the centuries.

Among these fascinating items can be found some of the more unusual examples of sampler work – like these two, which we have recently had photographed as part of our digitisation project. While they were out being carefully photographed, we took the opportunity to capture a glimpse of them on video.

For details of the digitisation project, see our earlier news post: Digitising the Embroiderer’s Guild Collection
