    Eleanor Steele is one of two sister samplers in Nicola’s collection. We believe that Eleanor was born in Cumbria, the most north-western county in England, bordering onto Scotland. We have found two possible Eleanors in the family history records. One baptised on August 29, 1824 in Saint Bridget Beckernet and the other baptised on July 26, 1823 at Saint Bees. It is possible that the two Eleanors were cousins, as Beckernet and Saint Bees are situated less than five miles apart.

    Eleanor’s sampler has been reproduced using a palette of seven colours from Au Ver à Soie’s range of Soie 100.3. We have provided conversions for Soie d’Alger and DMC. Only one spool or skein is required whether working on 28ct linen / 14ct Aida through to 56ct linen.

    Stitch count is 129 W x 165 H.

    Model was stitched on a 56 count hand dyed Zweigart based linen and stitched with Soie 100.3. We have suggested a few choices for hand dyed linens in different counts as well as a few thread choices.
