This neatly worked sampler bears the name Threepwood, which is small town in Galashiels, Selkirkshire on the Scottish Borders.

Evidence of it's Scottish origin is clearly seen in the typical style of the large alphabetical letters A - L on the third row of alphabets.

Family initials in this case placed below crowns are again found on Scottish samplers.

Worked with coloured silks on finely woven wool.



Open Wednesday-Saturday 10-5; other times by appointment
