Vintage White Work Sampler designed by Sharon Cohen Binder for The Nostalgic Needle dated 1993. An intricate band sampler featuring drawnwork reminiscent of the 17th century samplers. Stitched with pearl cottons on 29 count Glenshee linen, the finished sampler measures approximately 8½” X 23½”. Techniques include two-way drawnwork panels with darned fillings, two different drawn thread bands; 4 panels of hollie point lace; Ruskin Lace (like Reticella, cutwork with needlelace filings); needleweaving, and pulled thread. This is for the chart design and instructions, only. Below you will see the supplies you’ll need to purchase to complete the design.
Supplies needed are: 29 count cream Glenshee linen (although I have used several different linens of the same size – they make up nicely); 2 balls of #8 ecru DMC pearl cotton; 5 bals of #12 ecru DMC pearl cotton; #26 and #24 tapestry needles; size 8 embroidery needle; a 6” hoop; basting thread, pins for counting to mark off 10 thread increments with the pins; and very sharp pointy embroidery scissors (a must!).
Absolutely divine; if you have mastered most your embroidery stitching, or are above a starter, this is fantastic to work on.
