Needlepoint samplers - new contemporary designs and themes to commemorate all occasions.


A sampler started as a piece needlework produced as a demonstration or a test of skill. It included the alphabet, figures, motifs, decorative borders and sometimes the name of the person who stitched it, and the date.  In other words, a sample of one’s work. (And not too subtle either when they included the name & date of the person stitching it.)


The oldest surviving European samplers were made in the 16th and 17th centuries. Since printed patterns, let alone your “GOT NEEDLEPOINT?” newsletter, were unavailable, stitched models were needed. Whenever a stitcher saw a new and interesting example of a stitching pattern, she would quickly sew a small sample of it onto a piece of cloth - her 'sampler'.

OK – so we’ve come a long way baby – we can now get stitching instructions on line from Needlepoint-for-fun. Why do we care about 16th century samplers? It may be hard to believe, but Samplers are widely stitched today. Popular topics include designs commemorating births and marriages, family trees, and mottoes of all kinds.  Unlike our ancestors, we don’t copy patterns we’ve seen on someone else’s work – well at least not in random patches on a piece of cloth. Samplers now come in beautiful kits from your favorite designers. They range widely in style, from accurate reproductions of historic pieces to much more contemporary and modern styles.

Jolly Red has beautiful samplers ready for any occasion.  They're bright, colorful and contemporary.  Here are 4 new designs for a child's room - all with alphabets, numbers and a space in the middle for the name and birth date of your favorite grandchild. Do a traditional theme of Noah's ark -- or a beach scene.  Four different styles, all 10" x 8" with threads and instructions.


 

 

Not to be out done by the kit industry, hand painted canvases are available to commemorate an event. Not quite a sampler, you can easily turn the blank space of a frame, or other design into a commemorative piece.
