A Note From Our President

Happy New Year, Wecome New Members and Returning Members

We have lined up some interactive, educational and fun filled Programs and Workshops this coming year, we are in progress of updating both Workshop and Programs page on our Website.

As we look back on 2023 we (our TRSG Board) are proud to have provided our members with Programs of Sampler Education. Such subjects include Collecting Samplers, Identifying Characteristics in Scottish Samplers, History of Girls and Young Women’s Samplers in Mexico, Surface Embroidery and a Chat with two of our Designer’s in our membership. We hosted our annual MAGIC Program, a Quaker SAL, an Interactive Programs/Workshop, Monthly local Stitch-in’s and a 2023 Christmas Ornament.

We Donated $$ to the Sampler Consortium to aide in their efforts to locate, document and digitize American Samplers Region by Region (see link below for further details on the Constortium). Their high resolution images of these Schoolgirl Samplers can be viewed at the Sampler Archive Website (see link below). It can be viewed by anyone that has access to the Web, I believe this is an invaluable and lasting resourse for everyone.

WOW, what a year!
