The Token - Chart Only

The Token is designed in the style of the well-known medallion or "friendship" samplers stitched by pupils of Ackworth School York England in the late 18th century. These samplers were usually worked in one colour for economy. Ackworth was a Quaker school and the hall mark medallions peculiar to Quaker needlework can be found not only in England but also in North America. Schools at West Town Pennsylvania and Nine Partners in New York all produced similar work. Strong friendships were often forged under the spartan regime of Ackworth School and girls would dedicate their work either to another pupil or favourite teacher.

The Token has been adapted as a wedding gift from a new bride to her husband but could easily be modified to mark a special anniversary, friendship or event by the use of the alphabet provided.
