Nicola tells us: "Bristol orphanage samplers are particularly important as the orphanage kept meticulous records of each child, casting light onto the poverty and desperate social conditions that existed throughout Britain in the 19th century. Today these records give us the opportunity to share Harriett’s story with you."
Stitch count is 413 W x 414 H.
Model was stitched on 36 count linen and we have ordered in 45 metre hanks of the lovely Red colour of Soie d'Alger just for this project! (close to DMC 738)
