In earlier centuries, samplers were a way of passing patterns on and of practicing stitches and techniques. Today samplers are a fun way to try out new patterns and color combos as well as becoming works of art in their own right. Sampler possibilities include books, wall hangings, throws, mats, shadow boxes (for 3-D crochet pieces), other art pieces. This could be Irish crochet motifs, filet crochet, hyperbolic crochet in a shadow box, granny squares, amigurumi in a shadow box, etc.
Sampler Book - Belgium Hand made antique Belgium lace samples or examples. Sampler books were popular from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. Some were made by young girls in convents learning lace skills from the nuns. The handwork is very, very fine. Each piece is basted onto cloth pages.
