The fourth project in our vintage sampler collection. These samplers served not only to show off skills in needlework, but also were a means of teaching young girls the alphabet and numbers.
Size of motif: 178 x 276 stitches. When embroidered on 12 count linen over two threads, this will give you a finished stitched size of 29.7 x 46cm. To obtain the vintage aspect of this project, we recommend using natural, off-white or Sajou blueembroidery linen. You can use Retors du Nord 2030 (red) or 2882(sapphire). Or for an alternative, try it with our Calais cocoons in fire 6932 or cornflower 6934, variegated threads which give a surprisingly lovely result. Attention: if you use our variegated threads, be sure to sew whole crosses and to take up the embroidery at the same place when you change threads. If you interrupt the shading, the result will be less spectacular. Special letter tariff for this product.
Attention: the letter tariff is only applicable for certain products. The shipment costs are automatically calculated on confirmation of your order.
