"The word "sampler" comes from the Latin word "exemplar,"..........

...a tradition that's been in existence for more than 500 years.

Samplers may been developed to teach embroidery, but their makers soon discovered that they had other instructional uses. Samplers with letters and numbers taught children how to write these figures as well as stitch them. Some samplers taught arithmetic by incorporating multiplication tables into their designs. And some even passed along religious beliefs by including verses from sacred texts like the Bible.

As samplers evolved they began to be used for other purposes, including the recording of a significant event like a marriage or birth-which made it important to include a date. This had become a common practice by the 17th century, and is standard on almost all samplers made today."
