French Samplers

I simply love these samplers , always in red, or nearly always so must have been traditional.
We managed to buy quite a collection on our big trip, they all went very quickly so was thrilled to spot these at a Brocante last Sunday.
I think I am right in thinking they were a way of showing your skill at needlecraft and a lot were done at school.

    We love collecting early samplers, yours are breathtakingly beautiful !
