  • About
  • Model Information
  • A gorgeous American sampler that is over 260 years old. Sarah was only nine years old when she created this beauty, that in itself is utterly mind-boggling. The sampler is mostly symmetrical except for a few flower stems. This could be stitched either way and is a personal choice. The original model was stitched with silk on linen and measured 13.25 by 13.25 inches. Judging by the design and materials little Sarah grew up in an upper-class home.

  • You will receive a printed version of the pattern and it is free domestic shipping
