  • About
  • Model Information
  • This sweet little redwork sampler is an original design and was inspired by my Georgian Miniature redwork sampler from an earlier period. I think it would make an excellent addition to any sampler wall, especially those that collect red samplers. You are purchasing a printed chart that ships for free in the USA.

  • The Design is 281 wide x 155 high. The model is stitched on 36ct Edinburgh linen by Zweigart with Valdani overdyed silk called aged wine. The total stitch count is 9147 stitches and it takes 1 ball of Valdani silk (the ball is about 23 yards) which equals about 3 skeins of regular floss. The design is all cross stitch and lends itself to Pattern Keeper. 

    The cut fabric size includes 3 inches (8cm) allowance on all sides for finishing or framing. Calculations are listed for Linen and Aida Cloth.
