    The two sisters were born at Wincobank in the parish of Ecclesfield, Sheffield, to James, a farm labourer, and his wife Mary. Hannah was christened on February 24, 1824 and Ellen on November 20, 1827 at the Zion Independent Church in Attercliffe, Yorkshire, England.

    Ellen tells us that “Hannah Wilkinson worked this first, second and part of the third Alphabet in the 11th year of her age and died May 12, 1835 aged 11 years and four months.” We believe that Ellen picked up her sister’s needle at the letter “N”.

    Both verses are poignant and make us think that Hannah was deeply loved and missed by her family. Hannah was buried on May 16, 1835 in Ecclesfield. Most probably in the graveyard at the Zion Church. Ellen finished her sister’s sampler on May 21, 1841, when she was 13 years of age. The sampler is very precious as it is all that remains to mark both lives.

    Stitch count is 218 W x 181 H.

    The original sampler was stitched with cotton thread.

    Model was stitched on a 46 count hand dyed Zweigart based linen which is not available to us. We have suggested a few different count choices in the Vintage Light Examplar linen from Lakeside Linens and stitching with Soie 100.3. We have provided conversions for Soie d'Alger and DMC. Stitching with silks is 1 strand over 2 threads, while DMC is 2 strands over 2 threads.
