    Jane’s sampler is certainly one that catches the eye! A young Welsh school girl diligently stitched a sampler that is dominated by a decorative vase overflowing with blooms. You can almost smell the fragrant scent of the Cabbage Roses, also known as Rosa Centifolia, “the hundred petal rose”. Nothing adorns a room like a floral arrangement. Jane should be commended for her distinctive sampler. The roses tower over the vase, then tumble over like fountains of colour. And all contained within a border of plump strawberries. Doesn’t this sampler make your fingers itch to stitch?

    The original sampler was stitched on Penelope canvas with wool thread and is of Welsh origin. Whilst acquired at auction in Carmarthenshire, there is no Jane Hopkins to be found in this Welsh county in the 1871 census. We believe that the young maker was one of four Janes, who ranged in age from 8 to 13 years, that were born and living in the county of Glamorganshire, Wales.

    Jane's sampler has been reproduced using a palette of thirty two colours, matched to the colours on the front of the samper today, from Au Ver à Soie’s range of Soie d'Alger silks. We have provided conversions for Soie 100/3 and DMC. Stitching with silks is 1 strand over 2 threads, while DMC is 2 strands over 2 threads.

    Stitch count is 217 W x 290 H.

    Model was stitched on a Vintage Sand Dune hand dyed linen from Lakeside Linens and stitched with Soie d'Alger silks. We have suggested a few different counts as well as a few thread choices.
