A Correction for Great Pumpkin Seaside
August 17, 2016 - 4:34pm
Ugh oh. A dedicated stitcher has just pointed out that I failed to note what color the symbol "8" is on the back of my chart Great Pumpkin Seaside. Symbol 8 is Tin Bucket by Gentle Art # 7067 or DMC 413. Please add that to your charts!!! I am going to be correcting all charts that go out from here, but I realize that there are many out there missing this symbol. Please forgive me!

Maryland Flag Crab Pillow by Sally Rutka of Salty Yarns, Ocean City, MD
April 20, 2015 - 9:50am
Spent a pleasant time chatting with Sara Rutka, co owner of Salty Yarns Needlework Shop in Ocean City MD on Saturday. The weather was mild and warm and the boardwalk was busy. There were sun worshippers out on the sandy beach, what a beautiful day. While I was there I photographed Sally Rutka's (Mom of Sara and co owner of Salty Yarns) rendition of my Maryland Flag Crab Pillow. Sally blew up the pattern by stitching on 18 count fabric and using the DMC colors. It is beautiful, check out the picture below!

Nashville Releases for February 2015
February 5, 2015 - 4:19pm
Samplers Revisited is happy to announce that there will be 7 new charts debuted at Nashville Market at the end of February. 3 reproduction samplers and 4 Coastal Collection charts. You may view them all with details in the "New Charts" section of the website. Each reproduction chart brings something a little different to the mix. Ann Smith 1809 is a Quaker sampler from Westtown school in Chester County, PA.
Hay Cairns 1840 is from Weymss, Scotland on the East coast off the North Sea. I love her articulated capital letters.
The last sampler is Sarah Green 1849. An interesting Adam and Eve sampler stitched by an 8 year old. We think she lived in northern England near the Scottish border, but with a name as plain as that we are not sure!
Next there are 4 charts in the Coastal Collection for quicker stitching.
Blessed Are We Who Live By The Sea looks great hanging over your front door, done in your two favorite colors:
Then there is a great British motto with a little tweak: Keep Calm and Think of the Beach
Then there is another chart you can choose to stitch in your two favorite colors: Life is Better at the Beach
and last for Marylanders, our favorite Crustaean the blue crab and our flag decked out in Maryland colors: Maryland Flag Crab
I hope you enjoy all the new charts. Please email any questions you might have and look for these in your favorite stores in early March after Market.
