Description

This listing is for a PDF pattern, instantly downloadable after purchase, so you can start stitching right away!

Elizabeth Gee was born in 1708. She was the daughter of Joshua Gee, an influential Quaker, merchant, and an original financier of the American state of Pennsylvania. I designed and stitched this sampler as a commission by Traces London, and an exhibition they are staging at Fenton House in London. The brief came with information on the family, and challenged me to interpret what an early Quaker sampler might have looked like.

I started researching early Quaker needlework, knitted pin-balls, and samplers from the early 18th century, and combining elements from my research, I came up with this design. The quote on the sampler is from the writings of William Penn, who was a close friend to Elizabeth’s father, and undoubtedly Elizabeth would have been familiar with William’s writings.

This 9-page pattern booklet is available for download immediately after purchase, with an easy to read pattern spread over six pages.

PATTERN DETAILS:
details calculated for 32 count linen (or 16 count Aida)

height: 145 crosses, 9 1/4” (23cm)
width: 171crosses, 10 3/4” (27cm)
total crosses: 7808

thread estimate: approximately 4 to 5 skeins of Modern Folk Embroidery Wool, or, when stitched with 2 pulled strands of Retors du Nord 4 stranded cotton floss between 45 – 60 metres (3 skeins of floss).

If you have any questions about this item or my shop, don't hesitate to contact me! I love hearing from you. Also check out my website http://www.modernfolkembroidery.com

One fourth of the chart comes on one page so I guess I read backwards and upwards for the other quadrants. Not so easy to use. I don't see why the whole design couldn't be charted over multiple pages to make it easier for the user/buyer.
