#162 Victorian Band Sampler Sampler

“Love is a fruit in Season at all times and within every hand...”

Stitch this lovely sampler in the Victorian Tradition! The third and last project in the Victorian Collection, this stunning 24" long Band Sampler is inspired by the #F11 Victorian Purse and Smalls, and the now discontinued Victorian Pincushion and Smalls. This beautiful Victorian Band Sampler is stitched on Cashel 28ct Willow Green, but Zweigart manufacturer is no longer making it in 28ct. So, we recommend you use the 32ct Willow Green (which IS available) or a 28ct Raw Linen, or any other greenish-beige linen You will be stitching with over-dyed silk and silk flosses, silk ribbons, wool, pearls, and sparkling beads. The topper is a gorgeous Bargello heart with a vine, above some creamy lacy stitching, The Alphabet and then a scene picked out in petit Cross Stitches, of a large meeting house, and the tree of life, as well as petit bands for interest and fun. Further down, Mother Theresa’s inspiring verse is stitched within two bands of silk ribbon flowers. Another alphabet follows, and after some more creamy lace, there’s an English country scene with two friends reaching for the fruit of the ‘love’ tree in their garden. More flowers, and at the bottom is a delicious row of Bargello, incorporating the colours already used in the sampler. Enjoy stitching this fun sampler full of exquisite colour, fun and exciting specialty stitches, and a meaningful verse of love for all seasons.  – Thea
