Join exhibition committee members for a brief program, reception and refreshments and maybe learn a stitch or two about the fascinating world of needlework samplers. See the stunning collection of Centre County and Central Pennsylvania samplers including five examples from Bellefonte, PA thought to have been made by girls that were under the instruction of “subscription teacher”, Sarah Tucker. Explore the similarities and familiar Centre County names associated with these and other samplers from Central PA, including one made by Mary Irvin Thompson, wife of Centre Furnace Ironmaster, Moses Thompson.
Admission to the exhibit & opening reception is FREE. Donations are appreciated.
