There is apparently no such word as Embroideress! Well, that was until I designed and stitched this divine sampler! The design is counted from a chart but I have stolen a few stitches from the surface embroiderers. The kit is supplied on washed unbleached linen and includes pre-sorted stranded cottons (floss) and hand painted silk threads.

This is a beautiful band sampler with an enormous variety of stitches and techniques. There is a padded heart roughly in the middle of the sampler which hides my secret. Early in 2007, we lost our much loved dog, Charlie and so I have used some of his blonde hair to pad the heart and remind me of the fun he had in his Secret Garden.
The kit is available on washed unbleached linen only.
The chart pack includes all the instructions but is printed paper only. No embellishments are included.
Originally a five-part project for Members of the Cross Stitch Guild, this gorgeous band sampler is inspired by the Silverwood at Westonbirt Arboretum here in Gloucestershire. The kit includes the hand painted threads, silk ribbon, beads and gold plated needles.
This brightly coloured band sampler would be an ideal first attempt at this very popular type of counted embroidery. The borders are taken from an old Czech sampler, kindly allowed by Zweigart and Sawitski.
This exquisite sampler is a genuine copy of a sampler stitched in the 1600s. The chart is available in Charted Antique Samplers if preferred.
The design is stitched with all the errors and oddities worked by Sarah Maydman
This is an exquisite project to stitch with a large variety of counted stitches and small Hardanger motifs worked on 28-count unbleached linen.
My example was completed with a folded hem, but this could be framed if preferred.
You need to have worked on linen before and be used to counting from a chart
This exquisite band sampler was designed for us by Jane Napier, as a result of seeing The Goodhart Samplers. (There is a book, published by Needleprint - see Books.) A joy to stitch, but not for the faint- hearted!
Code: 521 H/B
This little package includes all the embellishments included on Charlie's Secret Garden. You do not need to buy this if you purchase the complete kit.
This special, small but intricate band sampler is now available as a complete kit. The design includes instructions for the folded hem and a wide variety of stitches.
The design includes pulled and drawn thread embroidery and a little Hardanger to add interest.
This cannot be stitched on aida fabric.
Inspired by the lovely Sulgrave Manor near Banbury, which was the ancestral home of the President of the United States, George Washington.
Counted from a chart with some additional surface embroidery stitches added with great effect.
