Colonial Williamsburg

December 15, 2009

Following up on information I received from the Sampler Symposium I visited the Colonial Williamsburg website ( There is a wealth of needlework information to be found! When you search “sampler” you will find 22 samplers from the museum’s textile collection. When you click on each sampler you will find comprehensive information about its size, materials used, content and provenance. Each photograph can be enlarge for up close examination. Other search terms to try include “textile” and “needlepoint” both of which yield similar results. Whether you are doing research or are just curious, I recommend this wonderful site to you.
