Shop Announcement:

In these unsettling and worrying times we need to keep in touch more than ever with our loved ones. The postal service is still working ok, so you can receive your card or framed gift in the post and send it on, or I can send a gift direct to recipient for you. I always post first class, and although we are self isolating because we care for 92 year old, we can still send our post out each day as our wonderful Postie is taking it for us, so you will receive your purchase within a few days. I hope you enjoy browsing through my designs, and hope they may bring you a little happiness, even if you don't buy anything today.

Heirloom Sampler with personalised hand-stitched text, vintage fabrics

Heirloom Sampler with personalised hand-stitched text, vintage fabrics

Love this


For a special occasion, a sampler with hand-stitched wording of your choice in the centre; names, date, place, anything you like, but please check with me first by email as there is only room for a very few words. This unique embroidery is just waiting for your own words to make it complete!

I have chosen some of my favourite vintage cotton prints for this miniature applique 'patchwork' adding an applique heart and pretty cotton lace as well as a tiny mother of pearl button from my collection. I have incorporated some of my hand-dyed fabrics in subtle colours. The double mount is signed.

Mounted in a lightly distressed whitened wood frame, measuring 8" square the entirely hand-stitched embroidery will arrive corded, with glass in place, professionally framed, all ready to hang with my studio stamp on the back.

If you are buying as a gift, I can add a plain white card to the back of the picture (optional) for you to write a personal gift inscription, just let me have your requirements in the comments box when checking out. Although I do repeat my designs from time to time no two works are ever the same. Should you decide to buy, this is the actual embroidery you will receive.

There is something special about stitched words, linking us to the samplers of the past perhaps, and marking a special time in a special way that will last for hundreds of years and be passed down the family. This is why I have called this piece of work 'an heirloom sampler'
