Catherine Annie Jupp 1877 is a reproduction of a 19th century cross stitch sampler from the private collection of Whilst Iris Naps Designs.
Catherine was from South West England where she lived through 2 World Wars, was twice widowed, raised her family and played a role raising her grandchildren as well. We include a short biography in the PDF download.
We provide easy to follow cross stitch charts in PDF format which include all the stitching information you will need to complete and enjoy this reproduction. Upon purchase you will have access to both A4 (UK) and letter (US) formatted PDFs.
A guide to show how I mounted my sampler onto the spool is included in the PDF should you want to finish this sampler in a similar way. If you're just curious how much effort is involved, or prefer to follow a video rather than written instructions, I now also have a walk through spool sampler tutorial video on YouTube showing my process.
The stitch count is 100 x 90 and our model is stitched using 1 strand floss over 2 linen threads on 40ct 'Antique Lace' by Seraphim Fabrics. We have used Weeks Dye Works threads for our reproduction but we also include DMC conversions. The design area on 40ct fabric measures approximately 5 x 4 1/2 inches (12.7 x 11.4 cm).
The pattern has some single thread (half a stitch) gaps between words and the small '93' is stitched in over one. It is therefore unsuitable for stitching on Aida without some adjustments. The pattern is otherwise all standard cross stitch.
