Thread Legend

The sampler has been reproduced with Au Ver à Soie d’Alger silks and the skein quantities calculated based on 1 strand on 36ct fabric. We have provided conversions for DMC based on 2 strands and Needlepoint Inc. based on 1 strand. The original sampler was stitched on linen closest in colour to DMC shade 422 and measuring approximately 16.25” x 20”.

Elizabeth executed her beautiful sampler in cross stitch over 1 and 2 threads, satin stitch and 4 elongated lazy daisy stitches. Whilst this is a large sampler with some 77,563 cross stitches, it is suitable for all levels of ability.
