The Bristol Orphanage Sampler - Blue and Yellow

Back to Leisure Needle Kits >   

 


The original of this sampler is in the George Müller Foundation Museum in Bristol, England.  

The sampler is unusual in that it is worked in blue, yellow, darker yellow and peach ............Orphanage samplers are normally worked in red.

Unfortunately we do not have any information about the girls who worked this.

It is a delightful little sampler measuring 10 1/2" x  11" when worked on 40count linen using Pearsall's Filoselle silk, one strand over 2 threads.  A special price thread pack is available from www.pearsallsembroidery.co.uk
