Liesbet Reitsema's Profile

About

The art of making samplers has always fascinated me. I started to embroider them a long time ago. My favourits are 19th century- crossstitch samplers, made by young girls to practise their skills. I collect patterns of original Dutch samplers and I design new samplers, based on old motives. I have a lot of books about the history of this handcraft. I love to design birth-samplers, with traditional letters and numbers in it.
