This is a reproduction of an miniature antique sampler made by Rheta Suggitt at Clee School, dated 1883. Rheta was 12 years old at the time.
The original sampler has been embroidered on approximately 55 count linen and measures 14 x 15.5 cm (5 1/2" x 6 1/4"). Our reproduction is charted for 40 count linen.
The stitch count is 161 W x 168 H.The sampler is entirely worked in cross stitch over two threads. Use one strand of cotton.
The model was stitched on 40 count Linen (#1094) hand dyed linen from
Weeks Dye Works using a combination of hand dyed and DMC cotton floss. A DMC
number is listed for those colours that did not have a good match between original wool colours and hand-dyed threads.
