Making samplers

I debated about giving this book 2 or 3 stars. The book is full of projects in the "style" of various sampler types. If you want to recreate actual historical pieces, this is not the book for you. The authors have provided brief snippets of the history behind the various sampler types, but there are other books that provide more details and information if history is what you are after. If you want the look of the various samplers and don't mind that they are new projects created by the needleworkers of today, then this is a good resource and project book for you.
