America's oldest known signed sampler ca. 1640.

With intricate and reversible stitches, Loara fashioned roses, pansies, gillyflowers, and stylized forms above a moralistic verse...The original piece has been housed, since 1844, in the collections of Pilgrim Hall, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

The design size on 35 count linen is approximately 11 1/2" x 33 1/2".

Joanne tells us: "Our reproduction is worked in 17th Century reversible stitching techniques exactly as found on the original. We also include directions for a non-reversible stitching approach to this sampler for those who may desire. The stitches used are variations on the Long-Armed Cross, Diagonal Cross, Double Running (with numbered charts), Algerian Eye and Standish Stitch. Our reproduction comes gift boxed, complete with silk or cotton floss, linen, color photographs, needle, instructions, patterns and verification number."

Kit is available in either DMC of silk floss on cream 35 count linen.
