ROSWELL, Ga. -- The 10th biennial Magnolia Sampler Guild Exhibit, being held at Bulloch Hall, includes an extensive exhibition of antique, reproduction and designer samplers from the private collections of the guild members.

This show will include over 150 samplers, including “smalls,” scissors and stitching related items, all displayed in the 1839 childhood home of Mittie Bulloch, President Theodore Roosevelt’s mother.

Prior to the opening of the exhibit, the Guild will have a “kick-off” luncheon at the Atlanta Athletic Club Thursday, September 19. Cost is $35/members, $45/non-members.

The guest speaker, Pat Veasey, from Clover, S.C., will present her lecture on “Nothing Could Be Finer," Southern School Girl Needlework from Carolina Piedmont.

On Friday, Sept. 20th and Saturday, the guild will hold its fabulous Boutique in the Osage Terrace Room at Bulloch Hall, from 10 a. m.–4 p.m.

Something new this year will be a raffle for a beautiful sampler, stitched by a longtime member of the Magnolia Sampler Guild and will be displayed in Bulloch Hall. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5.
