Over the past few years
Heirlooms has provided needlewomen the opportunity of stitching a 'Mystery Sampler'

Each participant would

   Receive a progressive section of this new sampler each month for six months

  • Choose the thread colours that were their favourite shades
     

   Choose their favourite fabric type, colour & count

The complete sampler design would remain a mystery.
As each section was worked month by month it was revealed.


This was also to be THEIR sampler, therefore, they could

*  Change a suggested colour shade  or  substitute it with an overdyed thread

*  Change  or  omit a section

*  Add a verse  or  add/change a stitch
