I thought this photo would be a perfect addition to my blog. I wrote the school to get permission to use a photo, but the permission did not come in time for my post on Saturday. I think you'll agree that the photo is too wonderful for me not to add now. Mary who sent me the photo wrote that this globe was stitched by Deborah Oakford of Darby, Pennsylvania who attended Westtown from 1815-1816 when she was 13 years old.
Westtown was founded in 1799 and was modeled after Ackworth School in England. You can learn more about Westtown here and here. The second link has a photo of another globe sampler and also a darning sampler.
