    Hands Across the Sea Samplers - Hannah Campbell

    Hannah divided her sampler into three sections. The top section dominates with a stunning lozenge- shaped cartouche within which she has worked two alphabets and a set of numerals. The larger font appears on several Quaker samplers. The middle section is a verse taken from the poem “Mary” that was published in 1796 and was “recommended to the attention of the Ladies”.

    For the third section, Hannah used small blue beads to work the glass panes in the house and on one flower head. Unable to source beads that were small enough to work on 46ct linen, Nicola decided to use Accentuate MMA in place of the beaded areas. We believe that Hannah intended the glass panes to shimmer in the sunlight, and the metallic thread gives this effect.

    Hannah’s sampler has been reproduced using a palette of 18 colours carefully matched to the colours found on the front of the sampler. The model was stitched using Soie 100.3 from Au Ver a Soie together with one spool of Accentuate. Conversions for Soie d’Alger and DMC are included in the chart and at NIAH we have all three thread options available. 

    Hannah executed her sampler predominantly with cross stitches laid over one and two threads of linen. Hannah also used Algerian eyelets and rice stitch. The sampler is suitable for intermediate through to advanced needleworkers. However, it is not beyond a determined beginner.

    We are taking pre-orders for the materials and hope to ship them by early June. For those that order a full kit (chart, fabric and thread) an SAL exclusive Miss Minnie McBean Frippery will be included.

    We are open Tue-Sat 11am-3pm PT for orders, pickup and appointments. We are not able to accept Expedited orders at the present time. Many of our vendors are still taking longer to supply us due to increased demand and supply chain issues. If you only want items we have in stock, please mark your order Ship Partial Cancel Incomplete Items. While we would love to be able to give firm ETAs for items we are out of, that's not possible with the disruption COVID-19 continues to cause across the supply chain.

    We hope that everyone stays safe and we truly appreciate your support.

    Russian customers: We are unable to accept orders being sent to Russia or using a payment method with that as the country of origin due to sanctions.

    EU & UK customers: We are no longer shipping orders less than £135 (~$170USD) to the UK or €150 (~$165USD) to the EU due to VAT requirements imposed by the EU & UK governments. If you are in the EU or UK and you order is over £135/€150, we can send it an you will be responsible for VAT when it is delivered. For orders under that amount, we would suggest having us send it to a Freight Forwarder in the US, which can then handle the requiste paperwork for VAT. We hope the UK & EU governments will adjust the rules to limit its scope to large scale businesses, but we're not confident that will happen.
