Our Scarlet Letter Years Blog and Gallery
In 2013 over 230 stitchers took up the challenge to stitch a Scarlet Letter sampler.
Between us we have managed 160 finishes stitched by people all around the world from experienced stitchers with walls full of Scarlet Letter samplers to the newbies who finished their first piece just for this challenge.
Originally the blog was set up just for the year but as so many would like to continue with the group we are carrying on and will now be known as "Our Scarlet Letter Years". It is a place for samplers lovers to meet, chat, share our stitching and samplers, support each other and appreciate the reproductions and original designs of Marsha Parker.
If any one would like to join us in stitching a Scarlet Letter sampler they would be very welcome. The Scarlet Letter portfolio is extensive and there is something for everyone's tastes and stitching level.
We are currently working on "The Gallery" an online exhibition which will eventually feature at least one stitched sampler of every chart The Scarlet Letter has published and highlighting interesting details. So far we have 231 samplers displayed and it is very interesting to compare, side by side, the same sampler stitched on different fabric.
This should be a permanent and invaluable online resource for sampler lovers today and for generations to come. We would like to invite you to join us stitching a sampler and/or to send us photographs of your previously completed Scarlet Letter Samplers to be included in the Gallery. At the end of 2014 we shall be drawing one of the submitted samplers for a $50 gift certificate for the Scarlet Letter.
