This catalog was prepared in conjunction with an exhibit held at the Rochester Museum and Science Center from April 15, 1983 - January 22, 1984 of the same name. This catalog addresses the functions of samplers in children's lives. The six sections of the catalog are: The Practical Child: Learning the Skills of Needlework; The Accomplished Child: Samplers and Education; The Pious Child: Religious Expression in Needlework; The Virtuous Child: Moral Values and Samplers; The Filial Child: Family Register Samplers; and The Artistic Child: Creativity and Style in Sampler-Making. These observations are based on the collection held by the Rochester Museum and Science Center. This collection has been neither studied nor been reproduced in any previous publication.
