A call to embroiderers, designers, and collectors of samplers

Samplers: Museum Exhibition of Historical & Contemporary Needlework

Benton County Historical Society presents a juried exhibition of hand stitched samplers, from March 11-April 30, 2011.

The museum will showcase some of its 18th and 19th century American samplers. To accompany these historic items, embroiderers, designers, and collectors are being asked to submit their creations for exhibition. These can be original historical samplers, original design contemporary samplers, reproductions of historic samplers, or samplers simply displaying a variety of stitches.

All must be hand embroidered. Typically, samplers can include mottoes, alphabets, landmarks, personalization, and a variety of other features. Samplers often (but not necessarily) incorporate a variety of stitches.

Look for submission deadlines and other details on the museum web site:
