Product Description

Sarah Ann Banton was born in Kent, England and stitched this sampler in 1833 at age 9.  The original sampler appears to have been stitched in silk on a 45/55 count linen.

Model stitched on 40ct Weeks Putty with AVAS Soie d’Alger silks

Both samplers call for 15 thread colors and the following conversions are provided:

  • DMC
  • AVAS
  • 100/3
  • Gloriana

There are two threads that are only used for a handful of stitches (DMC 898 & 931).

The reproduction is 275w x 439h about 14 x 21” on 40 count linen

Stitches used in the reproduction:

  • Cross-stitch over one and over two
  • Satin stitch
  • Straight stitch
  • Stem stitch

The reproduction features a verse at the top that reads:

Amongst ten thousand vain delights,

One thing is needful still;

Lord grant me Mary’s portion then,

And give me Mary’s will.

The reproduction also includes a freehand embroidery section around Sarah’s name and her age.

The adaptation is 275w x 365h about 14 x 18” on 40 count linen

The adaptation removes the verse and the carnation band.  The freehand embroidery section has been replaced with a cross-stitch version, as have the satin-stitched motifs.

The two versions can be purchased individually or together as a bundle.

Two skeins are needed of AVAS F05 and AVAS 2114 (or equivalent thread colors).
