Just been reading the latest issue of the textile magazine Selvedge (issue 22), and tucked away in the back pages was a short article on buying and conserving antique textile samplers. The article mentioned The Sampler Guild, which I'd not heard of before, so I thought I better check it out.
The Guild is an international membership organisation, based in the UK and originally set up by Linda Haddon. It's a forum for sampler enthuisiasts to share ideas and information. So if that's you..you might want to join the folk at The Sampler Guild. It publishes a number of reference books on samplers, and the "Sampler Directory of the UK" - to help you locate museums and other places with samplers in their collections.

Selvedge is a fantastic magazine for all textile enthuisiasts. Find out more on their website by clickin here: Selvedge
