Remember Now Thy Creator Scottish Girls’ Samplers, 1700 – 1872, a beautifully illustrated book by Naomi Tarrant FSAScot, looks at how samplers blend together artistic expression, teaching tool and historical document. Publication of this fascinating research was only possible thanks to generous support from a donor.
