Sarah Turner was just 9 years old in 1840 England when she knit a sampler. After converting to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons), she relocated to the Utah Territory in the US. Sarah and her sister left England alone, traveling by way of New Orleans and St. Louis. At the age of eighteen, Sarah walked from Missouri to the Utah Territory in 1850, and she carried her sampler with her the entire way. It is now in the collection of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers Memorial Museum in Salt Lake City, Utah. These mittens are inspired by Sarah's Sampler.
