Betty Ring

March 18,1923 - 2014

Sampler lovers everywhere recognize Betty Ring as the most accomplished sampler expert of all time. If you ever had the pleasure of listening to her speak about samplers, you NEVER forgot it. You knew instantly that you were in the presence of sampler royalty! She spoke for hours about samplers and did not need to refer to any notes.

Betty Ring was the ultimate proper gracious lady. We are all fortunate to have her numerous books and articles about schoolgirl embroidery.

Rest in Peace Dear Lady. You'll remain in our hearts forever.
