Jane Vaughan 1724.................Hands Across the Sea Samplers

This is an authentic reproduction of an early 18th century band sampler, worked in the traditional long, narrow band form of the 17th century with brightly colored silks.  Jane was just 7 years old when she stitched this.  The lower half of the sampler has rows of border patterns including 2 "oriental" figures, Jane's version of boxers.  Nicole Parkman has done a beautiful job of reproducing this sampler and presenting it in a book with all the motifs counted out for you within the graph and there are comprehensive instructions together with stitch guides.  The stitches used are cross stitch over 2 and three threads, satin stitch, Algerianeyelets, Montenegrin stitch over 2 and 3 threads, stem stitch, back stitch, double running stitch, and faggot stitch.  Fibers used are Soie d'Alger: 2644(3), 3833, 4245, 5024, 3815, 37336(2), 3812(2), 2926(3), 3745, 3435, 4246, 1814, 1812, 1745, 3724(2), 1746(2), 1742..  The chart shows both the shade symbol and the colour block.  The graph has been annotated with detailed instructions, stitch diagrams and shade numbers for ease of use.  Finished size when stitching on 40 ct linen is 8.4" x 34".  Shown stitched on 40 ct.

Fanny Hodges Sampler..........................Threads of Memory

Although this sampler is probably English, one of the most delightful things about it is the set of motifs the sampler has in common with a grouping of samplers out of Deerfield, Massachusetts.  Most particularly, notice the pair of white doves located in the center of the bottom of the sampler.  These doves are nearly, if not exactly, identical to those found on several samplers from the Deerfield Area.  Model stitched on 40 ct. WDW Beige, but can be stitched on any count and stitched using NP Silk fibers:152, 224, 296, 315, 336, 342, 344  (2 skeins), 563, 633, 641, 693, 695, 771, 851, 877, 974, 986, 991, 993.
