We are excited to announce the release of this beautiful Exclusive
sampler from Hands Across the Sea Samplers.
Eliza Martha Linfoot 1834 will be Exclusively available from
Attic Needlework, Needle in a Haystack, Traditional Stitches, A Stitch in Time and Hands Across the Sea Samplers!
Those of you who enjoyed our Facebook SAL for the Jane Fiddes
sampler will not want to miss the continuation of our group as we
transition to a SAL for Eliza Martha Linfoot.
Cherie Cluff Edington did such a fantastic job leading our Facebook
group and SAL for Jane Fiddes, that we are thrilled she has agreed
to take the lead for our Eliza Martha Linfoot sampler!
Eliza's sampler will ONLY be available from the sponsoring shops and
Hands Across the Sea Samplers.
Our SAL start date was October 1, 2021.
Nicola has generously offered a drawing prize of an antique sampler
from her collection for all stitchers that complete the Eliza Martha
Linfoot sampler within 12 months of our SAL start date.

30 count Legacy Linen: Soie d'Alger silk thread or DMC floss.
38 count Legacy Linen: Soie d'Alger silk thread or DMC floss. You *could* use Soie 100/3 but expect the coverage to be on the sparse side.

53/63 count Legacy Linen: Soie 100/3 or DMC floss.
Please email us if you would like a suggestion for stitching on Aida fabric.
The design is worked mostly in cross stitch with the basket section worked in satin stitch. There will be a cross stitch version of the basket provided in the chart for those working on Aida and/or those that prefer not to do the satin stitch.
