Needlework Press tells us: "Just in time for Valentine's Day, we're introducing a new reproduction sampler, SEVEN RED ALPHABETS (a companion of sorts to Six Red Alphabets released a few years ago).
"Sometimes a sampler gives us few, if any, clues regarding its maker or origin. Such is the case with this useful and elegant alphabet sampler. Stitched over two threads on high-count linen, the antique likely was a reference designed to be used as a pattern for future stitching. The random letters (ML, IL & L) between the top alphabet and the motifs could indicate that the maker’s last initial was L. As neat as the letters and punctuation are, it is curious why the samplermaker was somewhat careless with her numerals. (We have seen this on several other samplers as well.) Whether you stitch the entire sampler or use the alphabets as a reference for future projects, we are grateful that you have added this chart to your collection."
The stitch count is 485 W x 233 H.
Our suggested fabric for this count is
46 count Maritime White hand dyed linen from Weeks Dye Works using Gloriana hand dyed
Tudor silk floss.
