A SAMPLER is…..

a piece of embroidery worked in various stitches as a specimen of skill, typically containing the alphabet and some mottoes.  A lot of us think of samplers as being like the one above, done donkey’s years ago by a small child – usually female – to practice and show of her worth with a needle.

Samplers as a format are still being used today, and I thought it might amuse you to see some of the modern versions.
