Alexandra Peters’ collection of Samplers from the girls who went before us is riveting. The history behind them. The artistic nature of them. Their relevance to what ’she’ was facing in the 1800s will have your head spinning. Do not miss this interview with the brilliant Alexandra, who teaches us so much in the hour she spent with our fearless leader Christine Merser for Ladies Who Launch. You will find yourself heading up to your attic to see if by chance any of your ancestors happened to do a sampler that tells the story of her message to the world and your family's values.
You can take a look here at some of the pieces featured in Peters' exhibit at the Sharon Historical Society last summer: https://sideofculture.com/2022/08/untold-stories-of-american-girls-at-the-sharon-historical-society-museum/
