Amy lives in Lake Forest, IL. She has been stitching since she was 5

President and organizer of the Lake Michigan Sampler Guild, and in 2005
she organized an exhibit of historic samplers at the Chicago Cultural
Center. Amy plans to bring 16 to 20 samplers from her
collection. They will be American and European pieces originally
stitched in the 1600s through 1800s. Members are encouraged to bring
historic samplers or reproductions of their own that they would like to
share with the group. Guests are welcome at this meeting which will
kick off our year of programs related to samplers and sampler design. For more information, contact us at Lakecoang@gmail.com
