Mary Brown 1765 from Hands Across the Sea Samplers

    Nicola tells us: "Mary Brown finished her charming sampler on July 4, 1765. Sadly we have been unable to trace Mary as her name has always been a very popular one and there are many Mary Browns born during the time period. It is possible that Mary Brown was a Quaker or was taught or influenced by a Quaker.

    The sampler has many different elements: a beautiful floral border, three different alphabets, vases of fruit, a verse and the highlight of Mary’s design is The Lord’s Prayer which is very dear to many of us."

    The stitch count is 224w x 287h. The stitches include cross stitch over 1 and 2 threads, satin stitch and Algerian eyelets.

    The model was stitched on 40 count hand dyed Vintage Buttercream linen from Lakeside Linens using Soie d'Alger silk floss. A DMC conversion is included. Please check the boxes above to add these items to your order.
