I have decided to replicate a German sampler from around 1500-1550 that is
in the V&A museum. It is done on linen fabric with silk thread. The stitches
are cross stitch and long armed cross stitch. Has anyone seen this in
person or found a pattern that would tell me which stitch to use for each part of
the sampler? any help would be appreciated.
The Museum number of the work is T.114-1956. If you put that in the search
box, it will bring up the work. Or, you can go to this page:
I love that piece! I was sad in the fact that I didn't get to see it on
display when I went to the V&A. It was one of the pieces I specifically looked
for in the study room.
The book "Samplers from the Victoria and Albert Museum" by Clare Browne
has a great color picture of the sampler in it that I was able to chart
several of the designs from myself.
If you have a specific design in mind that you want to chart, I will take
a look at the book and see if I can help you more.
