    You can also learn more about Ann's sampler in this FlossTube video: https://youtu.be/-JUbgJ37JqU

    Ann Jonson's sampler was reproduced and stitched by Lisa Brown.

    We will be offering a PDF email of the full graph of the chart for paid orders.   These will be emailed to you within one or two business days after your physical chart has been put in the mail.  


    Our Stitch A Long start date was February 14, 2024.

    Please check the boxes above to have the linen and threads added to your order.


    Ann Jonson Sampler details:

    Ann's sampler has been reproduced with a palette of sixteen colors in your choice of DMC floss, Soie d'Alger or Soie 100/3.  The model for the cover was stitched using Soie 100/3.

    We are offering your choice of either hand dyed linen or solid color Legacy Linen for Ann's sampler.  Please read the details further down about choosing the best thread and fabric combination for your sampler.

    This delightful sampler has been mainly executed in cross stitch over two threads with some cross stitch over one for the verse as well as satin stitch and enlongated cross stitch.  This sampler is suitable for needleworkers of all abilities. We do not think this sampler would work well with Aida.

    The Ann Jonson chart includes Nicola's usual detailed history and research providing interesting context to Lucy's sampler. 

    The verse reads:

    As we have much to undergo,
    We all need patience here below
    That after we have done his will,
    We may be found on Zion's hill

    Stitch count is 261 x 455.

    We are providing fabric cuts that (with exceptions noted below) include a minimum of 3" margin on each side for finishing and framing.  In most cases, the cut will be larger than you need in order to accomodate the way our hand dyer can process the fabric. 

    Design sizes (fabric cut sizes are approximate):

    • 28 count Linen 18.64" wide x 32.5" high ~ fabric cut size 27" x 36" - please note this will give you approximately 2" margins top and bottom.
    • 32 count Linen 16.31" wide x 28.43" high" ~ fabric cut size 27" x 36"
    • 36 count Linen 14.5" wide x 25.27" high ~ fabric cut size 27" x 36"
    • 38 count Linen 13.74" wide x 23.95" high ~ fabric cut size 18" x 35" - please note this will give you approximately 2" margins on the sides.
    • 40 count Linen 13.05" wide x 22.75" high ~ fabric cut size 18" x 27" - please note this will give you approximately 2" margins on the sides.

    Fabric and Thread Choices

    We suggest that you choose your fabric first, then choose the appropriate thread with the appropriate quantity for the fabric that you have chosen.

    Please note: we will correct your thread quantity to that most compatible with the fabric that you have chosen even if your order comes through asking for a different quantity.


    DMC floss – a good choice for any of the fabrics that we are offering.  Please be sure to choose the appropriate quantity of skeins from the drop down menu above for the fabric that you are ordering.

    Soie d’Alger silk thread – best choice for 36 count and 40 count linen when using a single strand.   Can be used for 28 and 32 count linen when using 2 strands.

    Soie 100/3 silk thread – best choice for 46 or 56 count linen.  Can also be used on 40 count linen but the coverage will be a bit sparse.  Some people do choose to use this on 36 count linen as well with sparser coverage.
