Hailing from the British Isles, Elizabeth Bignold created her delightful sampler in 1738.  Stitched with shades of red and green silk, Elizabeth’s sampler includes reindeer and several motifs, including crowns, birds and flowering vines.  Stitches include cross, cross over one and satin. Stitched on 40 ct. linen with AVAS silk the sampler measures 9 1/2″ x 12″. The kit cost is $91 and teaching fee is TBD based on the number of class participants.

A photo of the reproduction (in progress) is below.
