Memorials: Although memorials were usually a form of "silk embroidered pictures" they deserve a category to themselves. A memorial needlework picture was one of the expected accomplishments of a young cultured girl c1780 to c1840. These typically show a tomb, mourning figures, and weeping willow trees. They are beautiful, sensitive, and graceful works of needlework art that are highly sought after by the top collectors of antique samplers and needlework. Contrary to popular belief the stitchers of these memorials were not necessarily in mourning over the loss of a loved one but merely creating a popular form of needlework. If they had no one close enough to them to memorialize they may dedicate it to a well known figure that had died or inscribe the tomb "sacred to friendship" or simply leave it blank.
