From the cover: "Several band samplers very similar to this one are in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London as well as in other important collections. This particular sampler came from the collection of The Scarlet Letter, and is now in a private collection. A similar color scheme appears on these samplers. similar pattern bands, suggesting that a certain teacher taught these girls. Typical of 17th century samplers, Ann Scutt's displays intricate pattern and color variations demonstrating how innovative a girl could be with a limited color palette and some considerable skill with the needle. Our reproduction is almost identical in size and color to the original."
