Abigail Bragdon

Stitched in Wells, Maine, when she was about eleven years old, Abigail Bragdon's sampler is both a lesson in geography and history. The states are stitched in a sort of geographical order starting with the most northeastern (Maine) and leading south and west. The dates following each state represent the generally accepted first dates of settlement there. The original sampler is in the collection of Strawbery Banke, in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Only cross stitch is required to work this sampler.
