Lampeter, Lancaster County, PA sampler, dated 1832
Anna, at age 14, worked this sampler with a variety of mirror image flowering motifs, birds, alphabet, and scattered
initials representing her parents and siblings. In the center cartouche she inscribed: "Anna Kreider is my
name, heaven is my station, Lampeter is my dwelling place and Christ is my salvation"…verse continues to remind
us that she is leaving this sampler behind so we will remember her," Lest I am quite forgotten".
Thanks for making this sampler Anna, you would now be over two hundred years old, and we are still thinking of
you, and your family, because of the lovely sampler you made, and because someone inscribed on the backboard of
your framed sampler the names and birth dates of yourself, your parents and all your siblings.
Silk on linen; 21" x 21" framed.
