What you'll need:

The story of Dropcloth Samplers started at Squam Art Workshops. In the summer of 2010, on a whim, Rebecca Ringquist designed and printed an embroidery sampler, and sold over a hundred of them at the Squam Art Sale. Word got around the blog-o-sphere, and one thing led to another. Why "dropcloth"? A dropcloth is something that can get messy - a piece of fabric that you can afford to make a mistake with. You can jump in and take a risk!
