The public is invited to bring their samplers and other schoolgirl embroideries to be photographed and documented for the Sampler Archive Project; a national online database of schoolgirl needlework. If you have more than two objects to be documented, please make an appointment by contacting Ryan Grover at (302) 674-2111 ext. 108 or rgrover@biggsmuseum.org.

Both Sampler ID Days are sponsored by the Sampler Consortium and the Sampler Archive Project.

The catalog can also be purchased in the Biggs Museum gift shop, online at www.BiggsMuseum.org, or by calling (302) 674-2111.
