This design was a sampler inspired by an antique sampler
by Margaret Cottam, aged 9.
The picture above shows part of the original antique sampler.
The chart details the bottom of the sampler (yes, it is worked from the bottom up!). Stitch count is 170 x 200.
This chart also includes instructions for stitching and finished the thread keep pincushion pictured above. If you look closely, you'll see that the symbol key for the sampler is the stitched design! Attach thread rings to the sides for your threads for this project. Our supplier is working on some antique metal rings or wire but I also think that the Kelmscott Designs round thread rings would be perfect!
The fabric for this sampler is listed large enough that you will have enough linen, in the same dye lot, to stitch the thread keep pincushion.
The model was stitched using 8 skeins of
Weeks Dye Works hand dyed cotton floss.
The model was worked on 30 count hand dyed linen from Weeks Dye Works. We will also be offering the linen in 35 and 40 count.
