  • About
  • Model Information
  • Olga Spindler, my great-grandmother, was just 13 years old when she completed this sampler in 1897. The best part is, that I still remember her so well. I was a young child when she was still alive and such a fun and goofy lady. Even in her old age she had a great sense of humor, played the piano like a wild thing - her favorite tunes were the "Donauwellen" by Josef Ivanovici - I can still see her hands fly over those keys - I miss her.
