Quick Overview

During the Spanish colonial period, lives of girls and young wowen in the Philippines revolved around cooking, praying and needlework, like crochet and embroidery. Cross stitching is a type of embroidery in which thread is sewn in "x" or "t" shape. This sampler was made by Maria Reyes when she was a student at Colegio de Sta. Rosa in 1895, as embroidered in Spanish. The school was established in Intramuros, Manila in 1750 to educate indias, or native Filipinas. Done on Aida cloth, this sampler also features borders, the alphabet in different sizes, various weaving patterns and designs, birds, flowers, foliage, etc. Framed in wood with glass.
