Remember Now Thy Creator
Scottish Girls’ Samplers, 1700–1872 by Naomi E A Tarrant


Samplers worked by young girls in the past have long been a subject for books, which often give patterns of old pieces and suggestions for new ones. On the whole, samplers have been viewed solely from the embroiderer’s perspective because they have both fascinated and intrigued. However, there is more to these works and recent research has begun to explore other aspects of samplers. This book considers samplers made in Scotland within the context of girls’ lives. It is illustrated by a wide selection of pieces from public and private collections and shows the variety that was made by young girls as they learned needle skills.
