Les modèles de broderie étaient le généralement fabriqués par des enfants, le plus souvent des filles, afin de s’exercer à broder des chiffres et des lettres ainsi que de la couture fantaisie. Ces trois pièces datant du début et du milieu des années 1880 sont l’œuvre d’Allie, d’Inez et d’Eva McGinnis d’Iberville.

----------------------------------

Samplers were typically made by children, usually girls, as a way of practising letters, numbers, and fancy stitching. These three dating from the 1880s were the handiwork of Allie, Inez, and Eva McGinnis of Iberville. Inez, who was eleven years old when she made hers, married Forest Eldridge of Brome.
