Item details


Some may think that books exist solely to fill shelf space but, suprise, they're more than just a pretty cover! In the olden days, before the internet was was twinkle in Al Gore's eye, books were the way people got their information. Now that computers are nearly universal, this sampler serves to remind us that books still have exclusive content. So crack open a book and discover some hidden treasure!

Second picture shows what the finished sampler looks like. It is not included in this listing.
If you want a finished sampler, please see this listing

PDF pattern includes a computer rendered image of what the sampler will look like when finished, a full size color chart with symbols, directions, and a suggested color key for DMC embroidery floss.

Design size is approx. 3.5" x 5". When stitched on 14 ct. Aida cloth it will fit perfectly in a 4"x6" frame.

***NOTE*** This pattern assumes the user has cross stitch experience, therefore, only minimal directions are included. If you need basic cross stitch instructions, please say so in the note to seller and I will include links to some instructional websites.

Don't have the time or experience to make this yourself? I'd love to stitch this for you!
Unframed sampler will be $30.00
Framed sampler will be $40.00

Convo me and I'll set up a custom listing for you. I'll be happy to work with you!

Sorry it took me so long to leave feedback. Everything was great and I received the PDF in a very short amount of time and it was all exactly as stated. Will hopefully post pictures later when I get finished with it :)
