    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). 

    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.

    The design area is 273 stitches (w) x 255 stitches (h). Our calculations have included a 3″ margin for finishing and framing, except where noted.

    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.
