Maggie Grant, 1903

The sampler on display was hand-sewn by a young girl named Maggie Grant, in 1903. In an elementary school at St Joseph’s School probably aged between 8 and 10 at the time. Used as a test before a betrothal arranged by the family for the prospective husband’s perusal. Isn’t it amazing all the patience and care that has gone into producing it. We are putting together a crowd-funding campaign at the moment, which will feature this item. Check back to find out more soon..
