Thread Legend for the Reproduction
Emma’s beautiful sampler has been reproduced with a palette of eighteen colours from Au Ver à Soie’s range of Soie d’Alger. We have provided conversions for Soie 100.3 and DMC. Estimated thread quantities for varying linen counts and the number of strands of thread used have been listed below.
Emma stitched her sampler mainly with cross stitch over two strands of linen. She used cross stitch over one strand of linen for the verse and dedication. There are a handful of satin stitches.
The project has been rated as suitable for needleworkers of all levels of ability. The model was stitched on 46ct Zweigart-based linen in Straw from Weeks Dyeworks.
