1707 - A Most Unusual Sampler

A Most Unusual Sampler 1

An historic sampler from the Guild Collection (Item 2011.28) has been reproduced and charted for you to recreate yourself.

This unusual German sampler contains cross stitch over 1, 2 and 3 plus a small variety of specialty stitches and an area of drawn thread whitework, making it a very interesting and visually pleasing project. 

The chart pack includes complete stitch guides for all the specialty stitches and thorough instructions for the whitework area.  If you do not wish to tackle the whitework, a small chart of alternative counted work embroidery is also included.

All funds raised from the sale of this pattern will go to the support and running of the extensive collection at the EGWA.

Option 1: The chart pack for the original sampler, "1707 - A Most Unusual Sampler", costing AU$15 is available here.

Option 2: The reproduction chart contains all the quirks and errors stitched on the original. If you prefer to stitch a more orderly version, a second re-imagined sampler chart has been created. The chart pack for this option including both the original and the reimagined versions, "1707 - A Most Unusual Sampler Reimagined", costing AU$20 is available here.
