Miss Mary Ann Bournes 1791 - A New Reproduction Sampler

Miss Mary Ann Bournes 1791 from Hands Across the Sea Samplers

I have some exciting news to share with my stitching friends.

Sandra of Sampler Lovers Blog and I have joined forces and formed a new design studio reproducing fine antique needlework - Hands Across the Sea Samplers.

Please visit our website to find our more information about our studio and full information on our first release. There are lots of close up photos for you to enjoy together with some free downloads and useful tools.

Mary Ann is a stunner - besides some small areas of satin stitch and a handful of eyelets the sampler is worked in cross stitch over 2 threads with Mary Ann's name in cross stitch over 1 thread.

Mary Ann's beautiful sampler is her legacy to us and we hope you enjoy stitching her as much as we enjoyed reproducing her.

Here is an introductory video to enjoy.
