Cissy Bailey Smith Sampler Stories Huswif Workshop 2023
August 19 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm CDT
Cissy will share the history behind the motifs she used on the huswif, borrowed from antique Scottish and English samplers in her collection. The primary samplers that she took the motifs from were made by Christian Mitchel of Scotland and Margaret Hughes of England as well as a fancy but small Scottish alphabet from her Jane Catherine Helen Bowlby 1832 sampler. Students will learn the variety of stitches used in the piece as well as how to finish the piece as a self-lined huswif.
