We have partnered with Hands Across the Seas Samplers to celebrate our 25th shop anniversary in 2023 and are so pleased to bring you Sarah Rinder 1841 as a shop exclusive. The birds in the birdbath seem like they are having an exceptionally fun time and we hope you'll have fun stitching Sarah.
Sarah's model was stitched on 46 count Lakeside Linen Vintage Maple
Sugar with Soie 100/3. We will be offering that color as well as Legacy Linen in a solid
color for your stitching choices. Threads available are DMC, Soie d'Alger, Soie 100/3 and Soie Surfine.
Sarah is cross-stitch over-two for most of the design with the wording cross-stitch over-one. There are no specialty stitches in Sarah's sampler.
We are doing Sarah as a year long Stitch-a-long (SAL) with Cheri Eddington leading our SAL. You can join our Facebook group for the Sarah Rinder SAL.
The charts are only available from NIAH as this is an limited edition exclusive for our 25th anniversary. When you purchase a chart you will also receive a PDF copy of the main chart as a single page. It is not available as just a PDF. We know that many stitchers prefer to stitch from a mobile device so you can stitch either from the physical chart or the PDF. We recommend you create a login when you check out if you have not purchased from us before so that your PDF link is easily accessible.
For those who are in the UK, Canada, Europe, AUS & NZ, if you are ordering just a chart Nicola will ship them for us from the UK to save on shipping charges. We will adjust the shipping once we receive the order to what the charge will be for Nicola shipping the chart only. So you can ignore what the catalog will add at the time the order is placed. It will be adjusted to these costs.
- UK - $4.25
- Europe - $6.25
- Canada - $7.75
- Australia & New Zealand $9.25
All kits will ship from NIAH (we are located near San Francisco, CA). New orders for charts and fabric/threads will ship in the Aug/Sep time frame.
We also have available 3 Frosted Teal Acrylic accessories from The Floss Queen (Cathe) in a Dove shape to go with the project. You an order a fob, needleminder, threadkeep or the whole set. You'll find them in Related Items below.
Remember, we do not charge for orders until we ship them. If you are wanting to pay via PayPal we will send you a request for payment when the order is ready to ship. So if you need to change something after your initial order and before we shipped, just let us know.
June 5, 2023 - we found 4 minor errors in the booklet and Nicola has generated a PDF with the corrections. When your orders ships you will receive an e-mail with the link for those corrections. We recommend printing them and keeping them with the booklet. If you plan to stitch from the master single page PDF loaded into something like PatternKeeper, those corrections are in the newest version of the PDF.
On the left side border, the bottom corner motif is one row below the rest of the border. None of the other corners have this anomaly. This is how Sarah stitched her sampler and it has been charted as Sarah stitched it.
