Emily Harben 1824 is a reproduction of an early 19th century English cross stitch sampler from the private collection of Whilst Iris Naps Designs.
The stitch count is 252 x 252 and our model is stitched using 1 strand floss over 2 linen threads on 36ct Weeks Dye Works "Tin Roof". There are just two thread colours - Classic Colorworks "English Ivy" (or DMC 935) and DMC 3045. The design area on 36ct fabric measures 14 x 14 inches (35.6 x 35.6 cm).
The pattern includes cross stitch, a tiny amount of backstitch, Algerian Eyelets and Four-Sided Stitch (there are no over one stitches so this sampler is suitable for stitching on Aida). A guide for Algerian Eyelets and Four-Sided Stitch is included in the PDF download of the chart.
Emily's story is remarkable, not many families can say that over the course of a few generations they have come to the aid of the British Royal family, held the highest political offices, changed the prospects of the poor globally and schooled some of the greatest female authors of all time. Details of the family history are included in the PDF along with the stitching charts (both colour and symbol versions are provided).
Emily Harben 1824 is an easy to follow cross stitch chart in PDF format and includes 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.
