The Betty W. Flemming Grant Fund of the Loudoun Sampler Guild recently made a donation to the Georgetown Visitation Monastery to fund the cleaning, stabilization and framing of the Eleanora Neale sampler. Sister Mada-Anne provided this photo of the sampler for us all to see, and forwarded this note: “What generosity! I shall have to open a new exhibit area thanks to your kindness.”
The Loudoun Sampler Guild is a group of sampler enthusiasts based in northern Virginia. We meet monthly for lectures, needlework classes and workshops, and field trips.
