Announcing - A new release from Queenstown Sampler Designs!

 Just in time for your Halloween fun.

The Witch of Bradford Station

Internet Witch

This sampler is made of motifs found on a sampler held in the Queenstown Sampler Designs collection. 

Any level
36 Count Lakeside Linens, color  Vintage Pecan
Stitched in Needlepoint Inc. silk floss
Stitch count = 82 high x 73 wide
Design area:  5.13” high x 4.56” wide
.

The Witch of Bramford Station is found on the Julia Dalley, aged 13, Bramford Station, England sampler.  It was made mid-19th century and is in the Queenstown Sampler Designs Collection.  She is a magical delight.  Her colors are subdued, yet charming; not the typical Halloween colors.  You could display your flying sorceress all year round.

We recently purchased the tall, multifaceted sampler, but we were not able to reproduce the complete design in time for autumn 2017.  The complete sampler will be reproduced sometime in the future.   We believe this is the first known witch motif to appear on a mid- 19th century sampler!  Please contact your favorite needlework shop to order.
