I often feel a bit bad and sad posting about auctions in the UK and the USA, knowing that everyone in the southern hemisphere is effectively left out. But here you are Australia! Mossgreen Auctions in Victoria, Australia have no less than 38 stunning samplers for you to enjoy. The auction is set for 14 September 2014 - a very auspicious day in my calendar! These darning pattern samplers are stunning The sampler above incorporates Quaker motifs in a traditional composition. And here are some early band samplers Below is an early German sampler This sampler below which is a composite of an earlier and later piece with the subject of the Judgement of Solomon is just thrilling....
