HANNAH BILLINGE FEAR - 1811
We are pleased to offer this Quaker sampler made by Hannah at South Brent School in the UK. There is a South Brent School in Somerset, and another near Totes in Devon. The original sampler, like many of them, was worked in an extremely fine wool ground. Hannah's sampler is like so many other
Quaker samplers in its use of the half and full medallion patterns. The inscription reads, "Love the Truth." Worked mainly in cross stitch with some cross over one. The Bristol Museum houses the original, access no. N3922.
