Hands Across the Seas Samplers - Eliza Martha Linfoot 1834
We are excited to announce the release of this beautiful Exclusive
sampler from Hands Across the Sea Samplers.
The Eliza Martha Linfoot 1834 will be Exclusively available from
Attic Needlework, Needle in Haystack, Traditional Stitches,
A Stitch In Time and Hands Across the Sea Samplers!
Those of you who enjoyed our Facebook SAL for the Jane Fiddes
sampler will not want to miss the continuation of our group as we
transition to a SAL for Eliza Martha Linfoot.
Cherie Cluff Edington did such a fantastic job leading our Facebook
group and SAL for Jane Fiddes, that we are thrilled she has agreed
to take the lead for our Eliza Martha Linfoot sampler! You can join the Facebook group at any time here.
Eliza's sampler will ONLY be available from the sponsoring shops and
Hands Across the Sea Samplers. The shops are each offering a
limited time 10% discount when you purchase all 3 components (chart,
fabric and threads) from one of our shops. All orders must be
placed by Saturday, July 31st 2021 for the discount to apply.
We are anticipating a SAL start date of October 1, 2021 although
that is entirely dependent on availability of supplies. All of our
fingers are crossed that we will be able to start shipping charts
and kits towards the end of August.
Advance orders are welcome and recommended.
Nicola has generously offered a drawing prize of an antique sampler
from her collection for all stitchers that complete the Eliza Martha
Linfoot sampler within 12 months of our SAL start date.
The design area is 249 stitches (w) x 246 stitches (h). Our calculations have included a 3″ margin for finishing and framing.
You can find our fabric suggestions on the Fabric Options tab.
We are taking pre-orders for the supplies needed for the sampler and expect to ship them the end of August if we are able to have all our materials by that time.
Cathe will be designing some accessories to go with the project, as part of her laser business The Floss Queen. Details will be posted when those are done.
The design uses 25 colors of either Soie d'Alger, Soie 100/3 or DMC floss.
We are suggesting the Legacy Linen fabrics below. Each of these is the same color in 4 different counts. You could certainly use a different fabric color, but this will get you the closest to the model. The custom cuts for this design will only be found in the Related Items below for the appropriate count. The cut will each be noted that it's for this design in the drop down menu for each fabric.
