Sarah Mary Larkworthy was featured in the 2016 exhibition “Now Whilst My Hands Are Thus Employed – Three Centuries Of Historic Samplers” and is held in the private collection of Nicola Parkman. Sarah’s exquisite sampler is a wonderful example of the legacy left behind by long forgotten school girls and their needlework teachers.

The original sampler was finely embroidered in silk with a palette of only five colours using cross stitch over two threads, satin stitch, Algerian eyelet and stem stitch. An undulating berried border with a flower head in each corner forms a surround to the centrally positioned The Lord’s Prayer.

The sampler has been reproduced with Au Ver à Soie d’Alger silks and the skein quantities calculated based on 1 strand on 36ct fabric. We have provided a DMC conversion based on 2 strands on 36ct fabric. The model was stitched on 40ct Lakeside Linen Examplar.
