The Sampler Archive Project presents Delaware’s Sampler ID Days
The Sampler Archive Project is funded by the Delaware Humanities Forum to locate, document, and photograph antique American samplers and related schoolgirl embroideries in Delaware’s public and private collections.
The public is invited to bring their antique American samplers and other schoolgirl embroideries to one of three Sampler ID Days where they will be registered, documented, and photographed.
Delaware Historical Society, Wilmington
Biggs Museum of American Art, Dover
Lewes Historical Society, Lewes
Bring your antique samplers for identification & documentation.
Hours: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Morning: Appointments only
Afternoon: Appointments and drop-‐ins
NOTE: Due to the time it takes to document and photograph these wonderful historical objects, appointments are required for anyone bringing three or more samplers to a Sampler ID Day.
