Early in 2013 two of our talented members were looking through the latest museum exhibition and discussing the various items on display when an idea for a sampler occurred to them. These ladies, after examining many embroideries in the collection and spending many hours on trialing patterns, threads and colours, have produced a beautiful and unique band sampler. This sampler, on display at the Guild headquarters, gives a variety of counted stitch and cutwork bands with clear detailed instructions making it suitable for embroiderers of all levels.
Worked on 32 Count Permin “White Chocolate” linen it has a finished size of 11cm x 45cm and uses DMC stranded cotton and Perle cotton. It is on sale from the office and all profits are kept by the Guild.
We are very fortunate to have such talented people in the Guild willing to share their skills and time so a very big thank you to Christine Bishop and Carol Young.
Instructions will be provided as a downloadable PDF.
