Stephen & Carol Huber: 17th - 19th Century Needlework

Mary Champion 1703 band sampler from Huber

Band sampler by MARY CHAMPION
England dated 1703

According to family tradition and a note attached to the back of the sampler, Mary was the mistress of a workhouse that trained young girls in the art of needlework and at one time was employed by royalty. This band sampler is over 300 years old and when made was not intended to be framed. It was rolled up and kept as an example of stitches to be referenced for future projects or teaching. It is worked in reversible stitch; the back is identical to the front.

Silk on linen; 17 x 8 inches unframed.
