Berthe Massiet

A reproduction Sampler from the designer's collection, probably from the end of the 19th Century - the original stitcher did not include a date on her sampler.   She embroidered four alphabets, spot motifs, and geometric darning patterns.   The Sampler is cross-stitched over two threads and incorporates the darning stitch.

Stitched with Soie d'Alger.   Stitch count is 302 wide x 245 high.

Isabelle's recommendations: Thread Pack for stitching with 1 ply on 36 count linen
