This is a sampler I have that is dated 1801. It was done by Margaret Pluright,who I believe was one of my ancestors. In addition to the alphabet and numbers it has 2 verses stitched as well as something I really can't make out. As I type this it occurs to me it's 200 years old. WOW..never thought about that before!!

Two hundred years old that is something isn't it. I would like to look that good and hang around for 200 years. :)

Ginger you should go and have it appraised. My sister in law has two - one from her great great GM done in the 1700's, and one from her Great GM done in the 1800's. They're VERY collectable and can be worth a lot of money. I think it helps the value if you can identify the relative that made it. Don't let anyone talk you into selling it until you know for sure what it's really worth. A lot of dealers will prey on people that don't know the value of their goods.
