This early embroidered sampler shows Wesley's Chapel. The view, taken from the south west, was copied from the first exterior engraving of the Chapel published by John Hindmarsh in 1779. This is also in the Online Collection.
The sampler was worked by Elizabeth R(B)yalls, aged 12. The education of most girls in the 18th and 19th centuries included the stitching of a sampler. Like many, this one includes a religious verse. However, this unusually large and elaborate sampler has a very clear Wesley connection, which is very rare.
