GH1857 A Dutch Schoolgirl Sampler

This booklet is an absolute treasure, a treasure of Inspiration!

Written in both Dutch & English, you will find the charts for this charming sampler as well as the 4 small projects inspired by the motifs found within the sampler; oval pincushion and scissor fob, pin drum, mattress and needlebook as well as a charted alphabet to personalise your creation.

The sampler was designed and stitched by "GH" in 1857 at the age of 14 and has an unusual colour scheme of blue, green and brown/beige - colours not usually seen in antique samplers.

Stitched with Au Ver a Soie silks and Weeks Dye Works & DMC stranded cottons, your booklet also contains two printed floss cards to keep your threads nice and tidy. There is a DMC conversion for all the threads used. The suggested linen size is 32 count.
