Colonial Girl Embroided Sampler
This is a small example of one of the methods colonial girls were taught their ABCs. Colonial girls would take a piece of cloth and cross-stitch letters into it. This was a sort-of alphabet book. Girls were not expected to go to school and, given the remoteness of Oakland in the 18th century, seeking education was not easy.
