About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:

"Mrs Campbell tells us that she lived in Oban. Scotland is divided into two main regions, “Highland” and “Lowland”, with the border between the two areas called the “Highland Line”. The Highlands lie to the west and the Lowlands to the east of the line. All of Argyll, the county in which the Campbell clan have their seat of power, lies within the Highlands.

Oban is located in Argyll and is the unofficial capital of the West Highlands. Oban means “little bay” in the old Gaelic tongue. Nestled between the cliffs and shoreline of the dark blue waters of the Firth of Lorn, the town is fortunate to be protected from the worst Atlantic ravages by the island of Kerrera.

Mrs Campbell’s sampler is as beautiful and as colourful as the place in which she lived. The area has captivated artists, authors, composers, and poets for centuries. Mrs Campbell’s sampler has been a joy to reproduce and to stitch and we hope that you will be inspired to pick up your needle and stitch her sampler."
