A Mensing 1872

  • Product Code: CS-M-AMENS
  • Availability: 18

A sweet, little redwork sampler that combines cross, Algerian eyelet, and four sided stitches in a most pleasing way.  Miss Mensing's stitches were not always perfect.  Some letters float slightly above the others, her spacing is at times irregular, and there is an occasional missed stitch.  I have charted these as they are.  A sampler that is charming for its simplicity and sincerity.

Model stitched on 35 count Week's Dye Works "Linen" linen.  The Gentle Art's Pomegranate thread used throughout.

Stitch count: 136w x 132h. 

Finished size: 7.5"w x 7.25"h on 35 count linen.

Pattern includes color photo, professional cross stitch chart with floss colors for GAST and DMC, aging instructions, and directions for hemming your sampler.
