Martha Dawson 1832 ~ A Little Gem from Hands Across the Sea Samplers

    This delightful sampler is brought to you as part of a series of “Little Gems” that are available as a .pdf download by Hands Across the Sea Samplers. It is the Our Sampler Years SAL for 2021 from Hands Across The Sea Samplers. (Ann Robers was the design for 2020!)

    Nicola tells us " Martha’s sampler caught our eye at first glance and has enchanted us ever since. Her meandering vine of plump, pink rosebuds wrapped itself around our hearts just as it wraps around the sweet motifs Martha’s young fingers stitched.
    The Martha that stitched the sampler was probably born on February 13, 1821 to Isaac Dawson, a weaver, and Molly Holt. She was baptised on Sunday, April 22, 1821. In the parish records the family are noted as living in Unsworth, Prestwich.

    There are two versions included in this download – the reproduction and an adaptation that is worked entirely in cross stitch over 2 threads and is suitable for stitching on Aida, Linaida and linen.

    The model was stitched on 40ct Pearled Barley from Lakeside Linens.

    Martha’s beautiful sampler has been reproduced with a palette of twenty-one colours from Au Ver à Soie’s range of Soie d’Alger. We have provided conversions for Soie 100.3 and DMC.

    Martha’s sampler has been mainly worked in cross stitch over two threads of linen with the verse and dedication worked in cross stitch over 1 strand of linen. An additional graph has been provided with an adaptation of the verse and dedication in cross stitch over two threads of linen, which makes the sampler suitable for stitching on Aida, Linaida, and linen.

    We have suggested 28, 36 and 46 count linen versions for you to stitch this lovely sampler on.

    The sampler has been rated as suitable for confident beginners through to advanced needleworkers.
