We are thrilled to be offering this Traditional Stitches Exclusive!
Amy writes mystery stories to accompany her samplers. Sometimes, the story is played out in the sampler in the symbolism, or other times, the solution to the mystery can be found in the sampler itself!
The kits always include Amy's amazing hand dyed silk threads, linen, needle, mystery story, chart and complete stitching instructions.
Description of the story: When the idea of a commemorative sampler to celebrate Traditional Stitches' 10th anniversary was presented everyone was excited to participate. Ten members names of the Traditional Stitches' stitching group were selected from a hat and each person was assigned a color. These women were then given the challenge to use a motif from one of the antique samplers from the group's earlier exhibit to fill their portion of the sampler. This led to the discovery that several of the antique samplers that the group had borrowed for their display were now missing. The members looked at each other suspiciously. Which one of them was guilty?
