Joy Jarrett of Whitney Antiques

Barbara Hutson posted a link on Sampler World for a video on you tube where Joy Jarrett of Whitney Antiques talks about antique samplers and shows some of her collection.

Well worth watching. http://youtu.be/BHlhRyoTQmU Eleven minutes of bliss.

Thank you Barbara and thank you Nicola. What a wonderful way to start my Saturday. Such a wonderful education on Antique Samplers. I really loved the slavery sampler, notice the chains on the arms and legs. Very unique......

Nice link, I did not know the original purpose of making the band samplers. Very interesting.

Thank you Nicola and Barbara for sharing this wonderful video. I have so enjoyed watching it and learning more about antique samplers. I love the strawberry pickers in Abigail's sampler and that white work took my breath away.

Thank you Nicola. Absolutely fascinating and so informative. I might go and have a look at Witney antiques when I am passing that way. I loved the strawberry pickers too. The white work as amazing.

I really enjoyed this!!! When we were in England, my husband took me there to visit her store. She was so nice, and what a collection. If you are going to England you should make a point to go there. Well worth it.

Thanks for sharing this Nicola and Barbara! Joy reminded me of the many hours I spent one summer in the textile room of the V&A, traveling through time, happily immersed in its treasures.
