Linda Vinson (Needlemade Designs) has stitched the Queen Sampler, originally by Darlene O'Steen of the Needle's Prayse, and made some color changes and adaptations. She has also adjusted the color key to account for changes in dye lots since the sampler was originally published in 2000.
This is a complete guide to the stitches used by Linda in her adaptation of this fabulous sampler.
It includes 11" x 17" colour photos of the front and back of the entire sampler, colour corrections to today's dye lots of silks, stitch diagrams and suggestions for the shown adaptations.
The Stitch Guide does not include the chart which must be purchased separately.
Please select Chart or Stitch Guide from the Drop down options.
