Thanks for the fascinating insight.

Living in a small semi-rural town in Yorkshire, England, the local museum centred in a 16th century town farmhouse has among its many exhibits delicately worked samplers made by, I think, 19th century girls. I'd always thought of these as a learning tool, not as a reminder of stitches and motifs. I shall pay more attention during my next visit!
