HIDDEN BEAUTIES: Australian Needlework Samplers with Peg Fraser

Tuesday 11 May 2010, 10:15 AM – 11:45 AM

During the Georgian and Regency periods, English girls produced needlework samplers of exquisite beauty and workmanship. Small wonder, then, that many people are disappointed in the simple, coarse samplers of their Australian cousins.

Peg Fraser professional historian completed her thesis on Australian samplers and invites you to explore the social history behind the humble Australian sampler and discover that the simplest objects can unlock the greatest stories.
