Stephen & Carol Huber: 17th - 19th Century Needlework

Lampeter, Lancaster County, PA  sampler from Huber

Anna Kreider
Needlework sampler
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.
