This antique sampler was a rare and unique find that we were eager to reproduce and share with the world! This piece is called a “vanity sampler” because all details (name, completion date, or age) about the maker have been cut out/removed to ensure that no one could ever tell their age. When Hello From Liz Mathews acquired this sampler from England, the cut and frayed section was disguised by folding the bottom border over the missing section and framing under glass. This “imperfection” made it all the more appealing and I think the verse stitched in the sampler adds to the vain sentiment and charm of this treasure.

Stitch Count: 240 x 286

Fabric: 40 count “Affogato” linen from Fiber on a Whim

Threads: NPI 901, 902,332, 761, 694, 747, 957, 321, 156, 867, 642

DMC conversion: 612, 167, 370, 3864, 680, 336, 838, 169, 500, 739, 3362

The model was stitched one over two using cross stitch.

A second chart combines a collection of the motifs from the large sampler as well as two alphabets and  a set of numbers allowing this piece to be personalized using the smaller sampler adaptation.
