Pacific Southwestern Region Fundraiser: Chottie Alderson’s Historic I Sampler

This version was stitched by Nancy Sturgeon, who took the class from Chottie in the early 1980’s, and is reproduced here with her permission.

Our Pacific Southwestern Region (PSR) is offering a very special revival of Chottie Alderson’s Historic I Sampler. By ordering this beautiful sampler, you support PSR. Here is more information about the design and how to order it.

A detailed description of the sampler follows the pictures. The entire document consists of 55 pages of history, photos, diagrams, and charts, including a bio of Chottie. This can be ordered by individuals and would be an excellent multi-month program for a chapter, with each member purchasing their own pdf file from PSR. Contact Pat Correz for arrangements for purchase by a chapter at

Garden of Delight, the 2019-20 design by Carol Algie Higginbotham, is still available for purchase using the form on the link below.
