Nicola tells us "Every time we look at Harriet’s delightful sampler, we smile. The reindeer, Christmas trees, and the particular shade of red thread she used remind us so much of Christmas time.
Harriet tells us that she was 16 years of age when she finished her sampler in the year 1817. Harriet Godhard was born in 1801 and is most likely the Harriet that married William Yeowell on December 10, 1828 in Clewer, Berkshire, England. Harriet’s husband, William, was a Licenced Victualler. He was the landlord of the public house known as “The Sun” (originally the “Rising Sun”) at 24, Windsor Street, Chertsey, Surrey.."
