TGIS - Thank Goodness It's Spring!
Scarlet Letter Website   |   New items


TGIS: Thank goodness it's spring, although you'd never know it by the heaps of snow on the ground here in Wisconsin.  But on the positive side, such unpleasant weather makes for more time to engage in pleasant pursuits indoors.  Please visit The Scarlet Letter's website to see what's new in the way of antiques, reproductions, books and additions to our customer sampler gallery.  In the next two months, two new reproductions will be released so stay tuned.

I hope that you have had a chance to visit Nicola Parkman's online stitch-a-long titled Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year. You'll find it at:
There are nearly 200 participants stitching many of the Scarlet Letter's samplers. It's fun to watch the progress of these talented stitchers and see the projects they are completing.

All the best,

 "New" Antique Samplers

Three antique samplers are now available for purchase.
The first is Christy Clark, a very finely stitched English sampler with the theme of the four seasons dated 1809.

Elizabeth Forfitt is a very finely stitched English sampler with alphabets and three verses at the top, with a scene featuring a large and elaborately detailed flower flanked by two enormous butterflies, within a four sided floral and Greek key border.

Katie Sym is an exquisitely stitched classic Scottish sampler featuring illuminated letters, an arcaded floral band, traditional motifs including peacocks, birds drinking at the Fountain of Life, feather trees and family initials. This sampler will be available as a charted reproduction later this year.

Scarlet Letter's Christmas Sampler

Inspired by designs from 18th century English, Scottish and American samplers, we have designed a sampler with a holiday theme that makes use of the bold, unfaded colors found on the reverse side of many antique samplers, where exposure to light has not altered their original brilliant hues.
