These berries capture the essence of the beloved Bristol orphanage samplers and pay homage to those children and the Bristol orphanages. This chartpak includes the ever-present Bristol Squirrel shown full size, and another chart with a smaller squirrel sized to fit a typical linen berry.
The orphanage berry and mini sampler are a nod to the mission George Műller and his wife began in 1836. With the exception of the buildings in the designs, all of the motifs come from a sampler stitched by Maria Hancock; her original sampler is in the collection at The Cleveland Museum of Art.
