Mary Ann Aldred Sampler from Needlework Press ~ Nashville 2024

    Nashville 2024 Market release.

    Victoria tells us "Although Mary Ann didn’t date her sampler, its characteristics indicate a date sometime in the early– to mid-19th century. Created by 11 year old Mary Ann"

    We do our best to recreate antique samplers that are in keeping with the original. We did take a few liberties with Mary Ann’s sometimes erratic border, but for the most part, our model (and the main chart of Mary Ann’s sampler) replicates the original, featuring the wonky house, over-one verse and swan with its mouth open. For those who prefer an over-two verse, we’ve charted part of the verse over two. The entire verse does not fit if stitched over two threads. For those who prefer a closed-mouth swan, we’ve also provided that option—although we must admit, that many of the swans we’ve seen are busy flapping their jaws or even chasing innocent victims."

    Stitch count is 142 W x 193 H.

    Model was stitched on 36 count Vintage Country Mocha linen from Zweigart and stitched 1 strand over 2 threads with hand dyed floss from Classic Colorworks. Full DMC Conversion is also included in the chart.
    Threads required include:
    Classic Colorworks ~ Blackbird, Ruby Slippers, Tea and Biscuits, Colonial Copper, Razzleberry, Cayenne, Stormy Night, Jakey Brown, Almost Auburn, Ye Olde Gold, Sticks and Twigs, Pine Needles
    DMC ~ 321, 729, 801, 844, 842, 921, 3011, 3064, 3687, 3777, 3768
