Harriet’s sampler has been stitched with #671 from Au Ver à Soie’s range of Soie 100.3. We have provided suggested conversions for Soie d’Alger and DMC. There is no exact match in DMC; our suggested colour of #310, a hard black, is the closest.

The design area is 143 stitches (w) x 143 stitches (h). Our calculations have included a 3″ margin for finishing and framing.
The sampler can be stitched on Aida, Linaida, or linen. The model was stitched using 56ct Zweigart-based linen that was overdyed to a lighter shade of Marbled Pointer from xJuDesigns. We would also recommend using Legacy Linen’s Victoria Sponge Cake in 30ct, Corn Tassel in 37ct, Foxtail Millett in 45ct, or Sycamore Seedpod in 53/63ct. You should use a count and fabric that you enjoy working with.
