Owner / Donor Story:

The sampler was stitched by Anna Sawatsky. Susan (Sawatsky) Siebel/Heibert gave sampler to Anne Glazov as they share the same name.

Married at the age of 20 to Henrich Sawatsky, Anna Sawatsky lost one of her hands in a farming accident when she was in her late teens (1888), so the sampler must have been made before this accident. She was the great grandmother to Anne Glazov.
