Jacqueline Holdsworth has been documenting samplers stitched by the students of Ackworth School for some time...her goals are to provide access to worldwide sampler collections for research and pleasure, to raise funds for sampler conservation, and to promote the appreciation and practice of needlework.

To accomplish one of her goals, she would like to hear from anyone who has in her possession an original Ackworth sampler. If you have one, please send all the details regarding the sampler, and a digital (preferably .JPG) or other image (photo) to one of the addresses below. Anyone furnishing such information will have an acknowledgment (unless they wish to remain anonymous) in Carol Humphrey's forthcoming book on the Ackworth Samplers, to be released in December of 2006.
