More Information

Isabella Uffindell 1829 was originally published by Hands Across the Sea Samplers in a special limited-edition booklet as a duet with her sister Ann Tong Uffindell 1835.

Isabella and Ann are two very special samplers. They are special not only as they are very, very beautiful samplers but also because they were stitched by two sisters. Both the sisters were 10 years of age when they stitched their samplers, Isabella in 1829 and Ann 6 years later in 1835. As a collector sister samplers are particularly fascinating.

Isabella’s sampler has been reproduced with Au Ver à Soie d’Alger silks and the skein quantities calculated based on 1 strand on 36ct fabric. We have provided a DMC conversion based on 2 strands on 36ct fabric. The model was stitched on 40ct Lakeside Linen Pecan Butter.
