An Easterton Sampler
We know little about this framed sampler which was made using long and short stitch embroidery.
It is believed to date from the 1880s and hung over a bed in Easterton. The message is simple and clear – ‘The gift of God is eternal Life’.
One of the benefits of modern technology is that we can get a pretty good close up view of the stitch work. So here is the word ‘The’ in close up.
Any further information on this item would be gratefully received.
