The Loudoun Sampler Guild supports the art and history of sampler-making through the Betty Whiting Flemming Grant Fund.  Grants are made to museums, historic house-museums and other organizations for the acquisition, conservation and preservation of samplers and other needlework.

In 2014, grants were made to the Chester County (PA) Historical Society to be used toward the purchase of a sampler display case and to the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation to be used toward the purchase of the 1788 ‘Harietta Stevens’ sampler.

Past grants have been awarded to, among others:

  • The Maryland Historical Society
  • Westtown School
  • Tennessee Sampler Project

For more information about the Grand Fund including suggestions for worthy recipients, please contact Barbara Bernard (
