Our new free exhibition Embroidered Stories: Scottish Samplers opens at the National Museum of Scotland on 26 October, showcasing an extraordinary collection of Scottish needlework from the 18th and 19th centuries.

Made by girls and occasionally boys as part of their education, samplers are small pieces of needlework containing a wealth of information about education, family, religion and contemporary events.

Through the stories they tell, this exhibition of Scottish samplers charts changes in morality, education and the industrialisation of Scottish society while also providing a fascinating insight into women’s history.

Generously on loan from the Leslie B. Durst collection.
