"J st A" Reproduction Sampler
REPRODUCTION SAMPLER PATTERN, READY TO DOWNLOAD, BY Couleur Tourterelle


Unlike samplers used for practice and learning, which usually feature an alphabet, this sampler is solely ornemental, very colorful and features a  parakeet, butterflies, a star and plenty of flowers. The stitcher probably designed the layout and completed the work for her own enjoyment. While it is not dated, the style and materials used point to the late nineteenth century.

 

Her initials are proudly displayed on each side of the central motif. The one on the right is preceded with two small letters "st", meaning the stitcher's French surname started with "Saint", Saint Amand, or Saint Aubin maybe?

 

The original sampler is worked in woollen yarn on canvas. It measures 14 ½ x 13 ¾ inch (36 x 35 cm). Globally colors have rather well withstood the test of time, with the exception of the bright pink used for the border of roses, having lost its color. The reproduction sampler matches the colors used originally and still visible on the wrong side, so as to retain all the glory of its youth.  

 

The sampler is worked in cross stitch, over two fabric threads, except for the letters « st » and the red eye of the parakeet which are stitched over one fabric thread. The reproduction sampler is worked in Soie d'Alger silk (AVAS) and DMC substitutes are also provided.

 

The original work is part of the personal collection of Meriem Chauvet of Couleur Tourterelle. The reproduction cross stitch chart strictly reproduces every stitch of the original sampler (see last photo)."
