SOLD Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly 2011 * 4 Magazines * £15 €25 $50 Shipping Included (Australia and New Zealand $55)

These 4 numbers of SANQ from 2011 are in virtually pristine condition.
The images used on the cover of the magazines showcase one of the samplers charted in the edition, though there are usually more than two samplers charted in each!
The magazines are around 50 pages each on average
and teem with projects large and small and many articles of historical needlework interest.
One of the articles - with a chart included for the sampler above - is about the phenomenon of stitched Solomon's Temples which appear to cluster around the North of England.
This depiction of the presentation of a giraffe - Zaraffa - appears in English samplers too - the version here for you to stitch is a Spanish one.
Below you can see one of the many projects for smalls
and there are modern takes on antique samplers for you to enjoy - Quaker-style samplers are very popular - I wonder why....... *:) happy
This sampler is one of my favourites for the year
as well as this special pin cushion and needle-holder. And of course, there are many, many, more projects and articles for you to enjoy.
