The Hunterdon County Historical Society hosted a very well attended book signing on June 1 at the Deats Memorial Library. A Sampling of Hunterdon County Needlework: the motifs, the makers & their stories, authored by researchers and collectors, Dan & Marty Campanelli, 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.
The Society received a grant in March from The Astle-Alpaugh Family Foundation* to pay for the printing of a full-color, 132-page book about Hunterdon County schoolgirl needlework.
The book is $25 per copy, with all proceeds to benefit the Society.
