Sally Stansfield 1841 ~ Reproduction Sampler

Sally is an ideal companion piece for the very popular Mary Clayton.

In researching family history records we found three possible Sally Stansfields: Sally daughter of William and Grace who was christened on December 1st, 1833 at Cross Stone, Stansfield, Yorkshire; Sally daughter of George, a cotton twister, and Grace born in Stansfield in 1834; and Sally daughter of Henry, a weaver, and his wife Nancy Pickles born on June 26th 1834 in the small hamlet of Colden Water and baptised at Mount Zion General Baptist Chapel in Hepstonstall Slack, Yorkshire.

We grateful thanks to Jacqueline Morris who stitch the model of Sally. 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.

The model was stitched on Weeks over-dyed Zweigart in the colour Straw using the mellowed colours found on the front of the original sampler today.
