    A fine example of a Victorain Sampler made in 1856 frame in its original oak frame, worked by a young girl named Ann Wrangham aged 10 , the hours of work that this young girl has put into this must be hundreds (no televisions in them days)

      Ha! We should force our teens to do this kind of needle work instead of Facebook-ing!
