Sampler Lecture

From Facebook:  The Lake County Chapter of ANG invites you to join us at our September meeting at the Vernon Area Library, 300 Olde Half Day Road, Lincolnshire, IL 60069, on Monday, September 17 at 7 pm.

Our speaker, Amy Keaton, will share historic samplers from her collection. Amy lives in Lake Forest, IL. She has been stitching since she was 5 years old and started collecting samplers in 1990. She is the
founding 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.
