Sophie Delft 1901 Reproduction Sampler
REPRODUCTION SAMPLER PATTERN, BY Couleur Tourterelle

 

If at first glance this sampler resembles any other needlework assignment as practiced at school, you will discover it is a much more complex exercise than it seems to be.

 

It starts with a riddle: why these series of initials, are they ancestors? And why the numbers: 6, 12,18,24, 3 and 9?

 

Meriem Chauvet's research leads us to the Netherlands where we will discover what young girls were taught, well beyond simply learning to cross stitch letters and numbers, and for which special purpose.

 

You can personalize this sampler with your own initials, at the same time practicing the skills these young stitchers were taught. In the case of Sophie Delft - without a single error.

 

The work includes some shifted cross stitches, ie. regular cross stitches shifted sideways by one thread. It cannot therefore be stitched on Aida fabric, or worked over a single thread on any fabric.  

 

This sampler is part of the personal collection of Meriem Chauvet of Couleur Tourterelle . The reproduction cross stitch chart strictly reproduces every stitch and matches all colors of the original sampler (see last photo).

Original Sampler (last photo) worked in cross stitch, over 2 fabric threads. 

Reproduction Sampler stitched using Soie d'Alger silk from Au Ver à soie (AVAS) or DMC, with cross stitches worked over 2 fabric threads on 40ct linen. Size 5 ½ x 4 ½ inch inch (14 x 11 cm cm).
