Description

From the Hope R. Hacker sampler collection at the Allentown Art Museum in Allentown, PA

GOD SAVE AMERICA stitched Eunice Birchard in 1798, and, evidently not one to plan ahead:

WHEN.T
HIS. YOU
SEE. THIK.OF.ME

Embodying all of the naivete, post revolutionary patriotism and charm of early American samplers, this simple piece makes use of cross over one and two threads of linen, and rice stitch. It is recommended for beginning level needle workers, and is stitched on 30 count linen. The finished reproduction sampler will be approximately 8-1/2 inches square.
