Winifred M Webb 1869 is a reproduction of a 19th century cross stitch sampler from the private collection of Whilst Iris Naps Designs.
We provide an easy to follow cross stitch chart in PDF format which includes all the stitching information you will need to complete and enjoy this reproduction as well as a spool finish guide should you wish to finish the piece 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 87 x 82 and our model is stitched using 1 strand floss over 2 linen threads on 40ct 'Gray' by Weeks Dye Works. We have used Au Ver à Soie, Soie d’Alger silk thread for our reproduction but we also include a DMC conversion if you want to match either our red or the red of the original sampler. The design area on 40ct fabric measures approximately 4 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches (11.2 x 10.5 cm).
The pattern is all standard cross stitch over 2 linen threads and so is suitable for stitching on linen or Aida.
