This publication is intended to document and provide more information about samplers held by museums in North East England. When the North East Museums Hub (NERMH) initiated this project in 2005, it was discovered that fifteen museums in the North East held samplers within their collections. However, the documentation in most of these museums was limited and very few of the objects had been photographed. This project has resulted in the documentation and photography of each sampler and production of this illustrated publication. As two of the aims of the project were to develop knowledge and help curators within institutions care for and provide information about their collections to their users, it was also considered important to include sections on the care and display of samplers. All of the documentation collected as part of the project can be found on the CD enclosed at the back of the book. It is a searchable database that contains a full and detailed description of each individual sampler together with an image where available.
