The Chase / The Mary Starkey Sampler Kit ~ Joanne Harvey ~ the Examplarery offered by Traditional Stitches – $254.95
I’m assuming this is not stamped because the description says it includes a transfer sheet.
Found in Colonial Williamsburg’s textile collection.
Kit includes complete instructions, transfer sheets for pictoral elements, color illustrations, floss, 40 count linen, needles and more.
Design size is 17″ x 28″. Stitches used include cross, satin, outline, Algerian Eye, Queen, rice French Knots, New England Laid, chain, long arm cross and a small darning pattern.
The Newburyport Sampler … the Samplar Workes
I just happen to be organizing my library and noticed I had this. It lookes very similar to the Chase sampler. The difference between the ones above is this sampler, the bottom is cross stitches instead of crewel.
