Marching into Spring!

At the March 2021 virtual meeting of the Tudor Rose Sampler Guild one of our members, Shelly M, gave a very informative presentation on the history of the Bristol Orphanages and the samplers they created.

The original Bristol Orphanage was opened by George and Mary Mueller in 1836 in Bristol, England. We were able to view several samplers from the collection of Claudia Dutcher Kistler which you can view on her website.

Our needles have been busy with several projects completed and submitted for our monthly Show & Tell!
