Bands of Many Colors
Verse: Let her who cares for needlework and wishes to perform the same, learn thoroughly and never shirk, and she'll obtain both praise and fame.

Typical of the band samplers of the 1700s, Bands of Many Colors captures the essence of a needlework era long since gone but remembered and studied with vigor by the needleart and sampler enthusiasts of today. Named for the neat rose of bands stacked one atop the other, the 17th century band samplers are considered by many to be the most fascinating of all samplers; and the embroidery skills executed on these stitched works of art are legendary. Poplular motifs, a single alphabet, and a variety of colorful bands have been combined to form the Bands of Many Colors sampler.
