Which one? Is it in the textiles study rooms ? (or whatever they're idea of heaven in a building, at any rate ;o)
I'd like to look at it if I ever get a chance to go back, and spend a
reasonable amount of time in there, with a camera that has an adequate
battery! (not the camera's fault...I forgot to recharge it!)

> At the present time, the Bostock sampler is the oldest reliably dated
English sampler in known collections.  Several of us have looked at a
sampler at The Museum of London and although not dated, feel that it is a
Tudor sampler, possibly preceding the Bostock sampler.
