Welcome to Examplar's Stitching Page
This sampler wrought with so much care
Adorned with colours rich and fair
My little friend let it impart
A moral lesson to thy heart
With like industry may it thou gain
That Peace which will thy mind sustain
In every trying time of need
Then wilt thou happy be indeed.
(sampler verse from 1825)
