Synopsis: One of the most intriguing cultural artifacts of our nation's past was made by young girls — the embroidery sampler. In Ohio Is My Dwelling Place, American decorative arts expert Sue Studebaker documents the samplers created in Ohio prior to 1850, the girls who made them, their families, and the teachers who taught them to stitch.
In this lavishly illustrated book, these now highly prized works are coupled with the stories behind their creations and the circumstances under which they were sewn. Ohio Is My Dwelling Place also includes an extensive chart of known pioneer teachers and schools in Ohio, as well as maps depicting the counties where the samplers were made.
These samplers serve as a tangible and enduring legacy of Ohio's history, and readers will be intrigued and fascinated by the stories presented in this extraordinary keepsake volume.
About the Author: Sue Studebaker is the author of Ohio Samplers: Schoolgirl Embroideries, 1803-1850, and has published articles in the Antique Review and Early American Life. She lectures widely and teaches courses on American decorative arts.
