1760 Hindeloopen sampler from Friesland
This fabulous sampler is from the town of Hindeloopen in the south west corner of the province of Zeeland.

They have numerous alphabets and geometric motifs as well as household furnishings such as the cradle and kas and household implements, all the women's domain.
