For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 114

For the Love of Stitching Sampler – Band 114


The First band of this sampler is very simple as it is simply 3 rows of herringbone stitch stacked to form a pattern for a fill.


A hand dyed mercerised cotton which is about the same thickness and weight as perle #5


This section of my sampler is worked on cream dress linen.


Procion cold water dyes for the thread


All samples are 15 cm (6 inches) wide and stitched together in one long band sampler.

The sampler is currently 44 ft 5 inches or 533 inches (1353.83 centimetres) or 14.8 yards (13.53 metres) long and still being added to.


I started this sampler in 2004 and completed it early 2005.
