Hello & Welcome to Our New Site
Thank you for visiting us here at The Marking Samplar. For the past fifteen years, we’ve discovered a true passion in supporting the preservation of historic Needle Arts. We hope you will join us in spreading the wonderful news surrounding Samplers – their history and the joy they bring those of us dedicated to this art.
From ‘The Homestead at Spring Grove’, our creative enclave in The Great Smoky Mountains and home to The Marking Samplar, we will soon be bringing you information on our latest Sampler Reproductions, news on easy as well as complex projects, details on our favorite Christmas Ornaments and Sampler-Related merchandise, and gift items. Your ideas, suggestions, thoughts and comments are always welcome. The Marking Samplar charts and products are carried at retail shops throughout the world - USA, Canada, France, The Netherlands, England, Australia, New Zealand, etc. Please support these shops with your patronage.
And, dear Stitchers - please be sure to send your latest “Works of Art” photos to be included in our Stitchers Gallery. Thank you for visiting us here at The Marking Samplar. Come back often to see our site evolve with new content. Together, we’ll keep the Needle Arts alive, as we celebrate and share our passion for this wonderful and historic art.
