When This You See Remember Me

7 in stock

Another lovely book from Witney Antiques in glorious colour, A4 and with 47 pages. The title of the book comes from a sampler stitched by Charlotte Malpas in 1834. An endearing poem is a personal favourite, and I am in the middle of designing a sampler using it. This book includes Quaker samplers, plain sewing and band samplers.

When this you see remember me

And bear me in your mind

Let all the world say what they will

Speak of me as you find

The story of this little treasure

I am naturally drawn to Witney Antiques, a remarkable gallery in Oxfordshire which has the largest collection of historic embroideries in Europe. I regard the owner, my friend Rebecca Scott, as the fount of all knowledge when talking about samplers and the history of this genre. Rebecca has collected samplers and other early embroideries for many years and is so knowledgeable. Although her soft back, full-colour books are originally designed to support exhibitions held at the gallery, they are amazing works. All her books are a joy and a must for the sampler lover.
