Schroth Sampler Recreations specializes in designing cross
stitch patterns and cross stitch kits. These unique needlework
patterns were inspired by 18th and 19th century cross stitch
sampler designs. Each needlework kit is sold complete
with materials authentic to the period.
The beautiful SPUN SILK, embroidery thread included with each of the cross stitch
patterns is easy to work with and has been hand dyed with historically accurate natural dyes by Cheryl Kolander, master dyer.
The fabrics included in the cross stitch kits are all pure linen. Needles, a chart, instructions and photo of the finished
sampler piece are also included.
