Scottish Samplers

For the lucky ones attending the ANG seminar in Philadelphia ... did you notice the announcement for Scottish samplers on display at the Philadelphia Museum of Art?  

For those not attending, look at the web site photos!   Wow - what a lovely collection!

Per the web site:

Embroidered Exemplars: Scottish Samplers from the Whitman Sampler Collection
Gallery 271, second floor
The Museum presents ten 18th- and 19th-century Scottish samplers collected by the Philadelphia-based candy company, Whitman Chocolates, in celebration of the company’s 170th anniversary and the 100th anniversary of the Whitman “Sampler” chocolate box.

(August 1, 2012 through Summer, 2013)
