In the With My Needle and Pen Newsletter, I was delighted to read about the Wisconsin Historical Society putting their sampler collection on-line.
When I visited an exhibit in Chicago (2007), I was interested in the Ann Relf sampler -- esp the first section with the alphabet letters surrounded by queen stitches!!! The image in the Exhibition Cataloge was ok, the on-line photo is larger & easier to view the stitching : )
This collection includes Betsy Manchester, Rhode Island, 1793
