Participants in the project, including members of the Embroiderer's Guild and the New Embroidery group, learning about the V&A's collection of embroidered samplers with V&A Curator Clare Brown

We spent the first day of the workshop in the textiles study room at the V&A, many of us meeting each other for the first time, discussing a selection of samplers from both the V&A's and the Embroiderers' Guild's collections. These samplers were the initial inspiration for the project.
