Susannah Allen, 1824  

This sampler, stitched by Susannah at the tender age of ten, demonstrates her skill with the needle. She used a variety of stitches, but her skill is most evident in the couched cartouche surrounding her name. In stitching her name, Susannah has turned the e in Allen backwards, just as it is charted.

This lovely sampler has cross, algerian eye, four-sided, satin and tent stitches. Our model was stitched on hand-dyed 40 count Cottonfields linen. Several strands of hand-dyed floss are included to be couched around the cartouche.

Finished size on 40 count: 13 x 14.2.

Chart:  $13.00 

Kit:  $ 82.00 (silk)/ $65.00 (DMC)
