This book was published last year about these beautiful samplers from Norfolk, England.
The layout of the samplers and certain motifs make Norfolk samplers easy to identify.
I was fortunate to hear a lecture by the author last years at the Penn Dry Goods Market.
These are my recent Nashville market purchases. They are limited edition kits by Louise Henderson of Cherished Stitches. They are inspired by the Norfolk samplers. I love them! The kits come with the everything to stitch and finish the piece except for the stuffing. I am looking forward to stitching them. Look for these kits at your local needlework store.
The Penn Dry Goods Market is the 3rd weekend in May this year. It is held at the Schwenkfelder Library in Pennsburg, PA. There is a great group of lectures and a class with Margariet Hogue of the Essamplaire. I hope that I will see some of you there. Check out the website!
I have made a little bit of progress on my LHN piece.
That is it for my Monday.
I hope that your week is off to a great start.
