The May 23 issue of the NY Times and the May 16 issue of the Hunterdon County Democrat printed articles on local writers, Dan & Marty Campanelli’s book, A Sampling of Hunterdon County Needlework: the motifs, the makers & their stories.
The book features 74 beautiful examples of the artistry made by the young ladies of Hunterdon. The samplers range in date from 1798 through the 1840s, and come from all over the county, including the lower portion that was hived off in 1838 to help form Mercer County.
A Sampling of Hunterdon County Needlework: the motifs, the makers & their stories will appeal not only to needlework enthusiasts, but also to local history buffs and descendants of Hunterdon’s early settlers.
The Society will host a book signing on June 1 at the Deats Memorial Library, 114 Main Street in Flemington from noon to 4:00pm. The book is $25 per copy, with all proceeds to benefit the Society. A small exhibition of Hunterdon samplers pictured in the book will be on display that day. The 1845 Doric House museum also will be open for tours. Call 908.782.1091 with any questions.
