The sayings presented in Family Rules were adapted from an 1864 sampler. The original sampler has been reproduced along with 2 variations, one more religious than the other. These familiar sayings go back farther than you expect. A little history about the sayings you will be stitching is included in the chart. The original unnamed stitcher thought her "rules" deserved a place on the wall where her family would observe them and we do too. Any one of these three designs is worth a place on your wall today. The thoughts and sayings are just a true today as they were in 1864.
Please note that pattern instructions that come with a kit will include instructions, threads, fabric, etc, ONLY for that specific kit item, and the instructions may not contain all of the options that are included if you separately buy just the chart of this title.
