Hands Across the Sea Samplers have been deeply touched by the support they have received in launching their new venture. Nicola and Sandra want to thank every one of you and we have a small thank you gift for you to enjoy.
We have received so many emails from old friends and new, from all over the world, offering congratulations and good wishes.
We have been grateful too for the selfless support and promotion given by other designers who have guided us in the complexities of the market and offered wise words of advice. Barbara Hutson of Queenstown Samplers, Jackie du Plessis of Fine-ally Finished, Pam Schmidt of Prairie Sampler, Ellen Chester of With Thy Needle and Thread, Carmen Sutton of Cardan Antiques and Needlework, Moira Blackburn, Tanya Renner Brockmeyer of The Scarlet House and Melinda Cole of Merrywind Farm.
Together with Jean Lea of The Attic and Joy Jarrett of Witney Antiques who have also guided us. Their generosity of spirit is greatly appreciated.
Most of all we would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of those who have purchased and stocked our first design – Miss Mary Ann Bournes.
We cannot wait to share with you several stunning samplers currently in production and due for release this year. All chosen especially for their beauty.
When putting together our designs and charts we have tried to make them unique and to do so from a stitcher’s point of view. We have taken features we love from charts we have enjoyed working from, added a few extras and got creative with our artwork to make our charts little gems to collect and cherish.
We are very open to input from our stitchers so please let us know if you would like to see any other features to make the charts even more enjoyable to work with.
Very soon we will be releasing our second chart and as a thank you to all our supporters we have a free chart of a sweet motif taken from this sampler; it would be ideal for a bookmark. Click HERE to download.
