Anna Tench 1811

 

“And be as the needle which enters not to stay, but to make way for a thread of uniting love.” ~  Thomas Comber

Anna’s booklet has been produced for Hands Across the Sea Samplers by Nicola Parkman. At the very core of Hands Across the Sea Samplers there is a team of needleworkers who are passionate about antique samplers and being able to share those samplers with you. Hands Across the Sea

Thread Legend

Anna’s endearing sampler has been reproduced with Au Ver à Soie d’Alger silks and the skein quantities calculated based on 1 strand on 36ct fabric. We have provided conversions for DMC based on 2 strands on 36ct linen. The model was stitched on Lakeside Linen Pecan Butter using the mellowed colours found on the front of the original sampler today.

The sampler is stitched mainly in cross stitch over 2 linen threads with a small amount of cross stitch over 1 linen thread. The sampler is suitable for needle workers of all levels of ability.
