An 18th Century Dutch Darning Sampler


An 18th Century Dutch Darning Sampler

Samplers like this one were used to teach girls how to darn. The teacher would tear a number of holes in a piece of fabric, and the girls would be required to darn the holes re-creating various fabric weaves. Thus, each cross section is somewhat different.

20" square.
