Beginning with a history of samplers from earliest times and proceeding with a tracing of styles from various countries, this book captures the reader's interest with well-written text and illustrations of museum-owned samplers. A section on choosing and preparing fabrics, diagrams of basic stitches, and general information on completing the project precede illustrations and graphs of 22 complete samplers. Needleworkers who prefer to design their own samplers can choose from a variety of alphabets, numbers, border designs, and traditional motifs. Designs range from simple to complex, for all skill levels. Recommended. Joanne K. Ham mond, formerly with Pennsylvania State Univ. Lib., Mont Alto
