Lydia, seller of purple
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY GRACEWOOD STITCHES
Kathy Bungard designer of Gracewood Stitches describes the pattern in her own words:
Lydia, a seller of purple, lived about 50 A.D. in Thyratira. She dyed and sold purple cloth which was associated with high social rank and wealth. Lydia's story is told in the Bible in the 16th chapter of the book of Acts.
One of the first Christians, this lady was not only a highly successful business woman, but she showed no hesitation in offering her support to the Apostle Paul and others after they were released from prison.
A brave and bold woman who inspires me,Kathy Bungard
