Mary 395 Bristol sampler

Mary didn't sign her name to this sampler, instead she stitched her bed number. The original traditional style sampler was stitched in 1869 over 2 threads on an uneven-weave fabric that was 60+ threads per inch. The entire piece was worked in Cross stitch with approximately 31 full stitches per inch.

The original sampler is in the private collection of Claudia Dutcher Kistler. Mary 395 was charted for stitchers by Nicola Parkman of Hands Across The Sea Samplers.

You can purchase a chart from Dutch Treat or from Hands Across The Sea Samplers. Our thanks to Nicola Parkman for allowing us to share the HATS reproduction picture.
