This sampler belonged to my grandparents, and is remarkable for the fact it is made by such a young girl. I've always mused on the comparisons of sampling music, embroidery, and software. The OSE workshop at Connecting Principle 2007 was called Sampling / Beta Testing - to describe the experimental phase of software and embroidery.
So imagine my glee when David Littler from the London Printworks Trust came to the OSE preview at HTTP Gallery. David is running a project called 'sampler-culutre clash' with dj's and embroiderers. The blog is sampler-cultureclash.blogspot.com
