This is my hand illustrated version of a traditional Alphabet embroidery sampler

I have admired traditional alphabet samplers since a young age both in books and museums and I am lucky to have several part finished and one beautifully stitched completed samplers here in my own collection and also at home in my East London flat

After the overwhelming success of my Friendship quilt kit that I lunched in summer 2017 with amazing results from all you participants in early 2018 I decided to once again put pen to paper and to start designing a new kit

My passion for hand embroidery combined with appliqué and patchwork again is the main focus of this new kit

My hand drawn lettering and text is something that I am passionate about and use daily when drawing with both my ink pen in my own sketch books and also when drawing with my needle so from this the ABC sampler has evolved

The design features a slightly wobbly Alphabet housed within a border of fine cross stitches there are two swans nurturing a sacred heart at the bottom and the whole piece is finished with a large signature bow to the top

Once I had screen printed my first alphabet sample template on to a fine natural cotton I enjoyed the months ahead working on and in to it, again the same as my friendship quilt using mainly my x 5 favourite shades of DMC embroidery floss combined with my own vintage threads and fabric scraps

The ABC template measures 20cm/28cm and my completed sampler with the patchwork border is 27cm/43cm but please feel free to make your edges as wide as you like and the final sampler as big as you like

My version is just as guidance so feel free to enjoy and take your own approach to this kit

Each quilt kit contains the following:

x 1 hand illustrated ABC template 20cm/28cm
X 5 skeins of DMC embroidery threads in my favorite colours
A packet of assorted fabric scraps
A simple cotton base fabric to back your template on while stitching the template
Full paper printed colour instructions
An A5 postcard illustrating my favourite stitch techniques

Enjoy the adventure and happy stitching x
