Cross Stitch Antiques offerscounted cross-stitch designs in two
series:  headmistress sampler series and schoolgirl sampler series,
usingmotifs, borders and verses fromdays gone by.

The Headmistress Sampler Series offers designs of a more intricate nature as the headmistress of a school for girls
would most likely bequite an accomplished stitcher.

The Schoolgirl Sampler Series offers designs of a very simple nature.

Lakeside LInens

Algerian Eye is used in the Upper Alphabet
Cross Stitch throughout remainder of sampler

This antique sampler was obtained by the
designer in January of 2018 from an antique
dealer who bought it an auction near Cornwall,
England. Note, Sylvia misspells her first name,
without the “l” and stitches the “y” upside down.
This is a clue that perhaps the stitcher was very
young. Other than the stitcher’s name, Sylvia
Trigg and the date, February 4th, 1841, there was
no provenance or history on the sampler.
