Harriet Salt 1866 ~ Reproduction Sampler

Bristol orphanage samplers are particularly important as the orphanage kept meticulous records of each child, casting light onto the poverty and desperate social conditions that existed throughout Britain in the 19th century. Today these records give us the opportunity to share Harriett’s story with you. Please see the separate section for copies of the orphanage’s records.

The sampler is suitable for all levels of ability and can be stitched on linen or aida.
