Amy Cann 1831

Amy’s delightful sampler depicts a wonderfully imaginative landscaped park with a velvet lawn, specimen fruit trees and shrubs together with a pinery flanking the terraces as they rise up to a classical temple. This young sampler maker has used her needle to create an ornamental pleasure ground so typical of the Georgian period. 

Thread Legend

The sampler has been reproduced with Au Ver à Soie d’Alger and the skein quantities calculated based on 1 strand on 36ct fabric. We have provided a conversion for DMC (based on 2 strands), and Needlepoint Inc. silks (based on 1 strand). The model was stitched on 40ct Lakeside Linen Vintage Meadow Rue using Needlepoint Inc. silks.
