The Sampler Consortium

The Sampler Consortium is a newly formed, international organization of scholars, historians, curators, educators, genealogists, textile conservators, collectors, dealers, and needlework experts interested in the study of historic samplers and other girlhood embroideries.

 The Sampler Consortium has three major objectives:

               * To advance the study of historic samplers and other girlhood embroideries;

       * To increase access to information and research relevant to the study of historic samplers and girlhood embroideries;

              * To design, develop, and support projects that advance the study of historic samplers and other girlhood embroideries

You are warmly invited to join us in these efforts by becoming a member of the Sampler Consortium.  Please visit our web site:  http://samplerconsortium.org/
