Do You Have a Sampler Wall?

As you can well imagine, I have samplers all over my house. Mostly my designs, but also my growing collection of antiques and a few that were stitched by others, or that I stitched from others' patterns.

I decided to turn that awkward wall in my studio into an overflow/catchall sampler wall...
Much better than my previous filing system in which the samplers lived on a shelf like a bunch of books.
What do you do with all of your finished samplers?

What a fabulous wall of samplers! I love them grouped together like this. I have a similar wall, and samplers everywhere too - but am quickly running out of room. I need a long gallery extension that just goes on - and on - and on......!

Great wall! I also have sampler walls in fact most all in my home are sampler walls. My repros are all framed. I can always find room for more. MJ

Beautiful collection!

I'm working on a sampler wall. Right now it only has 3, granted 3 large ones, but only 3 (Mary Wigham, Hannah Beeby, and The Token (Long Dog). I'm stitching as fast as I can to get more up there.

I love your sampler wall! I have two sampler walls but they're not quite as full as your is. Love it!

My samplers line the wall of the stairway to our upstairs. I love seeing groupings of samplers!

Lovely sampler wall! I have five. Yup five, but in smaller groupings than yours. I told my husband we need a bigger house or put up more walls! ;-)

I hang them on the wall. I like the way you grouped them all together. I have most of mine spread out all over my house. MartyG

I do the same. I have a sampler wall in my bedroom and there is nothing better than waking up to see them!

Love your studio wall!!! I have a cat sampler wall in my studio. It is fun and makes me smile. That is what stitching is all about...making us smile while we work on them and then again when they are hung.
