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 on one color for economy. Ackworth was a Quaker school and the hallmark medallions particular to Quaker needlework can be found not only in England but also in North American schools at West Town, PA and Nine Partners in NY who 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 favorite teacher.
