ZILPAH WADSWORTH SAMPLER KIT
Zilpah Wadsworth (1778-1851) was born in Duxbury, Massachusetts, the daughter of General Peleg and Elizabeth Wadsworth. She made this sampler in 1786, the same hear she and her family moved into the newly built house that is now the Wadsworth-Longfellow House in Portland, Maine, part of the Maine Historical Society. This sampler was almost certainly made as a school exercise, although whether eight-year-old Zilpah was sent out to school or tutored at home is unknown. Zilpah married Stephen Longfellow on January 1, 1804, in the parlor of her family home. Zilpah and Stephen are the parents of poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, born in 1807. Zilpah's original sampler still hangs in the Wadsworth-Longfellow House in Portland.

This sampler kit includes: a chart, instructions, cross stitch fabric (your choice of aida cloth or linen), a tapestry needle, a Zilpah sampler postcard, and a short history of samplers in the 18th and 19th centuries.
