Learn to Stitch a Sampler

​​Date:  Sunday March 3 and March 10, 2013, 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.

Location:  Old Town Hall Museum, Route 172, South Britain

Fee: This program is free, but registration is required. Please call 203-405-3124 to register.

On Sunday, March 3 and March 10, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., the Southbury Historical Society, in partnership with The Golden Button, will offer a special two-part needle-working program for youth ages 8 and older at the Old Town Hall Museum in South Britain.


In the first part of this program on Sunday, March 3, Kate Gorham, owner of The Golden Button in South Britain will teach children basic embroidery techniques, needle safety, stitches and how to apply them. Supplies are provided for the class and participants will begin by creating a “Stitch Book” for use as a guide.  On Sunday, March 10, using the techniques and stitches learned, participants will create a simple decorative sampler.


Historically, learning to stitch a sampler – a decorative piece of needlework – was an important part of a schoolgirl’s formal education. Young girls made samplers as a way of learning embroidery techniques, which would be useful in clothes making and marking and repairing the household linen. Early samplers were simple in design with alphabets and numerals. As samplers evolved, they became more decorative with motifs of fruit, flowers, trees, birds and animals.

This program is free, but registration is required as space is limited.



Paper Flowers…. I am planning a Paper Flower Making Class for March! One for kids and one for adults!
