American Quaker Sampler stitched by Krista


Saturday, 25 October 2014


Marsha has just signed a licensing agreement with the State Historical Society of Wisconsin to reproduce this amazing early 18th century sampler made by Mary Hammand in 1732, possibly in Rhode Island.  It should be available in the spring of 2015.

This is going to be another beauty. Spring cannot come soon enough !!!

Nicola dear ~ Now that is one that cries out for reproduction.
Cannot wait... will stop the world
and immerse myself in that one.
Thank you, Marsha

Now, this is a fine piece of needle art. The verse, from what I can read, is wonderful. Looks like a very fine over one, except for the center. Marsha, you are amazing, thank you.

My goodness! What an intricate looking sampler! Another gorgeous one!
And I only have Hanna Katerina barely started and
I was going to do Eleanor Parr after that, and I am stitching Mary Ann Hutton
for Christmas and... : )
(I think my family dr. is going to become famous for diagnosing a new disorder called "OCS" (obsessive compulsive stitcher) : )
(I agree though, Nicola, Spring can come sooner rather than later in 2015!)

Dido Theresa, my family already says I won't live long enough to stitch all the samplers I think I must have! Mary Hamond is a real beauty!
