Hannah Prescott Reproduction Sampler

Instructor: Joanne Harvey of The Examplarery

Class Details

Throughout history, Boston, Mass., and surrounding areas have produced a large collection of needlework made by young girls of various social and economic backgrounds. One such example was stitched by Hannah Prescott. Born Aug. 8, 1786, to John and Martha Prescott, Hannah completed her intricate sampler at the age of 16 years old. She also records the town of Westford on her embroidery. Her sampler displays varied designs and embroidery techniques. A scrolling border surrounds her stunning outer acorn border.

Stitched on 35-count linen with 18 colors of DMC cotton floss and 12 shades of pearl cotton, the finished sampler measures approximately 13 1/2"H x 11"W and features a collection of various stitches: cross stitch, outline stitch, satin stitch, Algerian eye stitch, buttonhole stitch and New England laid stitch.

Students will receive instruction for transferring the lower pictorial area of the sampler. The class will also spend time viewing other embroideries and samplers from Boston and surrounding areas.
