Elizabeth Charlotte Cotton 1753 - Reproduction Sampler

This beautiful band sampler from the collection of Nicola Parkman of Hands Across the Sea Samplers, was originally reproduced by her as a workshop project exclusively for The Attic Needlework’s 2019 Sampler Symposium. Now you can stitch Elizabeth’s sampler and take the workshop online.

Thread Legend

Elizabeth Charlotte Cotton’s beautiful sampler has been reproduced with Au Ver à Soie silks from their d’Alger range and the skein quantities calculated based on 1 strand on 36ct fabric. We have provided a conversion for DMC based on 2 strands on 36ct fabric.

The model was stitched using the mellowed colours found today on the front of the original sampler. The colour of Legacy Linen’s 37ct Wild Honey is an excellent choice of fabric for the sampler.
