Samplers and chocolate:

I know that just after Easter is not the time to talk about chocolate. If you are like me you are on chocolate overload but did you ever wonder where Whitman’s Chocolates got their package design? The birth of the Sampler is fully described on their site. A Tale of Two Samplers is the story of the Bicentennial design by Dorrit Gutterson is an article about the Whitman’s Sampler box and stitches used. Thought you might enjoy reading these.

  1. A Tale of Two Samplers is the story of the Bicentennial design by Dorrit Gutterson is an article about the Whitman’s Sampler box and stitches used.– I cannot access this link, and I have not been able to get the article from the organization. Any suggestions?

  2. Please can I draw your attention to the following website: oneguyfrombarlick.co.uk which has masses of freely downloadable material which will interest anyone researching the history textile industry in England. The LTP is particularly worth noting. This is a new site, free of advertising and registration is free and clean, no mailing lists or adware. Please consider putting a link to us on your site.

    Thank you, Stanley Graham.
