Hannah lived in Norwich, New London County, Connecticut. She stitched her sampler circa 1760-1800. Hannah was from a family of expert needleworkers. Forced to flee from their Connecticut home in 1778 – the family was Anglican and sided with the English during the American Revolution – the Pundersons spent the rest of the War behind British lines in New York. Correspondence between family members documents that the Punderson women continued to do needlework, but wartime conditions presumably required them to “make do” with materials already on hand, accounting for the limited color range. After the war, the Pundersons resettled in their former hometown of Preston, outside Norwich, Connecticut.
The sampler is stitched mainly in cross stitch along with long armed cross, algerian eye, satin, queen and double running stitch.
