Society (N1993.001.661)
There is an exhibit of Delaware samplers at the Biggs Museum of American Art (Dover, DE) from March 7th - April 20th, 2014.  This is a result of the fantastic Sampler Archive project led by a consortium of museums and univeristies.  

An attending symposium will include projects as well and is from March 21-23rd with lectures on March 22nd.  Get to the website and register soon for the symposium!

If you want to read more about the project and learn some of the background, there is a nice article online from a Delaware online mag.
