1715 Mary Aiken Reproduction Sampler

Instructor: Margriet Hogue of The Essamplaire

Class Details

Recreate a historic Rhode Island sampler, the earliest sampler known to include the specific bands found in later works from this region of the country. A young Mary Aiken stitched her design in 1715. Margriet Hogue will treat students to a treasure trove of in-depth knowledge and research about the history of the Mary Aiken sampler in a PowerPoint presentation.

Stitches in this unique reproduction sampler include cross, reversible cross, Montenegrin, double running, cross over one, satin and long-armed cross. Worked on 35-count linen, the sampler measures 13 1/4" x 19 1/4".

Class kit includes: Soie de alger silk and Zweigart linen, charts and detailed directions for stitching and assembly.
