The Talbot Historical Society is holding an exhibition, symposium, and sale of American and European needlework entitled “Head, Heart and Hands” on Saturday, May 2, 2015 in Easton, Maryland. The exhibition will showcase over 40 highly detailed samplers, which provide a snapshot into the daily lives of 18th and 19th century women.
The symposium will kick off with a talk by nationally recognized needlework expert (and Loudoun Sampler Guild member), Barbara Hutson, followed by the sale of 28 or so samplers. Barbara will be around all day to answer questions.
The event is FREE, but space is limited for the talk. Anyone wanting to attend should call to reserve a spot. 410.820.7525
