At last the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge have an opportunity to display a larger selection of their collection of samplers. Sampled Lives will run for almost a year, from 6th May to 8th April 2018.
There are plans to organise a branch outing, probably in autumn 2017. Email your interest if you haven’t already.
For those who can’t get to Cambridge the museum has an excellent online Collections Explorer. You can use it to view and explore an enormous variety of items including the Sampler collection …… and you don’t even pay for a parking space!
