Sarah Braizear 1829 Limited Edition Sampler from Hands Across the Sea ~ now in stock!

    If you missed out on the Uffindel Sampler (which sold out in just 8 days!), you will want to be sure to order this design.

    Nicola tells us: "Sarah stitched her sampler with cross stitches over 2 threads and straight satin stitches. The lowercase letters of her
    name, date and short verse are stitched with cross stitch over 1. There are 2 eyelet stitches. Whilst a large sampler
    with some 70,000 cross stitches (we haven’t counted the satin stitches!) it is suitable for all levels of ability.

    This is a beautiful chart including a centrefold spread with a large photo of the sampler over two pages.

    The design area is 487 stitches wide x 482 stitches high. 
    28ct – Design: 34.79" x 34.43"
    32ct – Design: 30.44" x 30.13"
    36ct – Design: 27.06" x 26.78"
    40ct – Design: 24.35" x 24.10"

    Sarah’s sampler has been reproduced with Au Ver à Soie d’Alger silks and the skein quantities calculated based on
    1 strand on 36ct fabric. We have provided a DMC conversion based on 2 strands on 36ct fabric. The model was
    stitched on Zweigart 40ct Newcastle linen in Summer Khaki.

    Please check the boxes above to have these items added to your order.
