This is a stunning early 19th-century sampler. I find it interesting that the only damage on the sampler is the area where the date would have been. Harriet was born 24 June 1807 in Penistone, Yorkshire, England. She would have stitched this sampler in 1822. There is a blog post on the interesting history and findings here: Harriet's Blog Article
