Abstract
This qualifying paper explores the history of Dutch embroidered samplers, focusing on common imagery, and discusses a cleaning treatment for a c. 1820 Dutch embroidered sampler. Of particular interest in this paper are popular embroidery motifs, the importance of embroidered samplers in women's lives, methods for addressing tidelines caused by water contact, and mounting for future display. The sampler is in the collection of an FIT Adjunct Instructor, and will return to her possession after treatment.
