The story of this little treasure

I am naturally drawn to this remarkable gallery in Oxfordshire which has the largest collection of historic embroideries in Europe. Rebecca Scott has collected samplers and other early embroideries for many years and is so knowledgeable. Although these soft back, full-colour books are originally designed to support an exhibition held at the gallery, they are amazing works of interest to both the sampler collector and the interested stitcher.
