Shepherd's Bush Sampler
1st class – June
2nd class – August
3rd class October
This sampler from 1997 is done in cream, rose and green Au Ver A Soie Silks on 32 count hand-dyed Belfast linen.
Design area is 51 X192 stitches.
The stitches in this sampler are:
Smyrna Cross, Chain Stitch, Checkerboard, Diagonal Satin, Whitework, Wide Herringbone, Satin Stitch, Wide Cross, Flower Stitch, Herringbone, Woven Diamonds, Fence Stitch, Pulled Work, Swedish Weaving, Satin Triangles, Rice Stitch, Hungarian Stitch, Long-Armed Cross, and Woven Cranberries.
This design is for the Intermediate/Advanced Stitcher.
I recommend that every member attending this class
should bring a “doodle cloth”
and thread to practice each stitch during the classes.
This sampler comes as a complete kit but with not a lot of overage if you make mistakes and have to remove stitches.
The silks provided can vary in dye lots and be difficult to match if you should run short of silk.
Kits must be ordered from Shepherd’s Bush well in advance.
Price is $34.00
Sign-up deadline: March meeting.
