As a specialist form of needlework, the gift adds a fascinating dimension to Bury Art Museums needlework samplers. The works help to illustrate the lives of 'genteel' ladies, fitting well into the museums displays of crafts and pastimes, gender issues, and providing a link to the social process of mourning.
