Browse by Origin: English Samplers

English samplers of the 16th century were worked in a long narrow (6-9 inch) ribbons, as this was the width of the looms of the time. Since fabric was expensive, the sampler was totally filled with designs. We know that samplers were considered valuable because they were often mentioned in royal inventories and passed down through generations.
