TSG Update

We are writing to advise you of changes within The Sampler Guild.

The Guild was started way back in 2001 as a focal point for receiving and distributing information of all kinds, regarding samplers and related topics to sampler enthusiasts.

It’s been a while, but The Sampler Guild (TSG) is back from March 31st 2022.

With a new take and fresh ideas on how we can benefit sampler lovers once again.

Find us on the TSG website / Facebook / Instagram

There will be interactive calls, classes, talks and lectures via Zoom and the majority of these will be free to members. 

Non-members will be welcome to join in for a small fee, that will be advertised per Zoom event. 
We will run the Zoom events mainly at the weekend and at a time when international members are able to join in. 

All Zoom events will be recorded for those that can't make the time or date.

We will be running other events around the UK.

We are going to be running study groups when the need arises, online and at museums around the UK.
This is to further the valuable research that is done privately, to enable greater knowledge of the samplers that are available to us.

Keep up to date with all the latest news by visiting "The Chronicle" page.

TSG Emporium will be open for business, with the scissors and bookshop open again.
The new Linen Cupboard will be offering Italian and German linens in varying counts and colours.

Again, we will be working with and promoting other Sampler Guilds around the world. 
During the last few years, we have continued to work with museums and researchers, both at home and overseas, to further our knowledge of samplers and associated textile related interests.

We will be running a membership scheme

    • - Original members £10 per annum for one years membership.  Two years membership is £15
    • -  New members £20 for one years membership.  Two years membership is £30
    • For original members your membership number will stay as issued first time round.

       Payable by bank transfer or Paypal. 

We hope that you will join us in the next chapter of The Sampler Guild’s story.
