Newest Reproduction Sampler - Jane Ann Smith

Hi Everyone,

Just got back "Jane Ann Smith" one of the new samplers to my collection. It is a very nice sampler and will be one of my new teaching pieces. What do you think?

EGA in Ohio

I am excited to be teaching on the 25th of April for the EGA. I have a new Scottish Sampler that will be taught wrought by Margaret Duncan Dullafur. I will also do a small lecture on Scottish Samplers. Scottish Samplers are some of my favorites. I look forward to meeting the ladies of the EGA guild.

Upcoming Events

Be on the look out for the next two issues of Cross Stitch and Needlework Magazine. In the next two issues will be the Peak Sisters' Samplers. These samplers were purchased because I thought it would be neat to own samplers from sisters--they are the first to be added to my collection. (Thank you to Chris for stitching those for me.)

I will also be offering a kit to turn one of them into a needlebook. You will have to purchase the magazine and then you can purchase the finishing kit from me and finishing instructions (which were written by Liz of Ruffles Finishing--she always does such a nice job). More details later.

Jane Ann Smith Reproduction Sampler

Once it is framed I will be posting a new teaching piece. This sampler was wrought by Jane Ann Smith. It has beautiful shades of green. As soon as it returns from the framer I will post.

Our weather in Ohio has been unusually nice. Can this be the last of the snow? We hardly had any. Not that I am complaining.

Thanks and make time to stitch.
