Sampler Charts from Haslemere Educational Museum

Just a reminder of the wonderful sampler charts available from Haslemere Educational Museum. Mary Gibson's delightful sampler of 1824 was worked when she was 11 years old, is now available as a download from Haslemere Educational Museum. Mary's sampler measures: 19.5 x 20.5 inches (49.5cm Length: 52cm) and is 293 x 304 stitches. The sampler is worked on linen with 30 threads/inch (12 threads/1cm). The PDF chart, only available from Haslemere Museum, is priced at £10 or $20. All your money goes to the museum. For more details or to buy just click here.
There are just a few samplers stitched by boys and this one in the Haslemere Educational Museum is a very special and lovely example with its charming house (do you think it could be James' house?) in the shade of a tree, its many pots of flowers and not one, but two darling squirrels. Again you can buy the chart direct from the museum. For more details or to buy just click here. Thank you for all your support.

  1. School charts and school posters are great reminder, educational and learning tool. School charts, educational wall charts and school posters have the ability to convey a complex and difficult subject and concepts in simple words.
