Item: SCTL-037
Type: Cross Stitch Patterns
Designer: Scarlet Letter

Note from the designer - "Few samplers were stitched on this unusual dark green linsey woosey fabric that combines linen and wool to create a dramatic dark background color to highlight brightly colored floss. Most of these samplers were made in the coastal towns of Massachusetts up to New Hampshire. Surrounded by a Greek Key border, this unsigned sampler begins with a classic Quaker style alphabet, A through Z, executed in cross-stitch, followed by another in eyelet stitch, the next in rice stitch followed by an alphabet in four-sided stitch. Below the alphabets is a jumble of flowering plants and a bird.

Two groups of initials flank the eyelet stitched letters WXYZ which could represent initials of the maker's maternal and paternal family members. The initials on the left side are DS, PS, NC, MC, SC, MC, and on the right, they are JF, EF, PF, DC, SS, and LS. This sampler could easily be adapted to include your own family's initials."

Reviews From Customers Who Purchased This Item

from United States on 10/11/2022 - Interesting fabric color
I bought this since I thought it was really different using a dark green fabric. But it’s not easy to find right now. I did find one I think will work and it should be beautiful when finished.
