Ann Tong Uffindell 1835

$32.00

Cross stitch pattern from Hands Across the Sea Samplers. "Ann Tong Uffindell 1835 was originally published by Hands Across the Sea Samplers in a special limited-edition booklet as a duet with her sister Isabell Uffindell 1829. Ann and Isabella were our gift to our stitching sisters in 2017, and as they each make their solo appearance at the end of 2019, they are once again our gift to a new audience of sampler lovers. They come from our hearts to your hands.

When we reproduce samplers, we not only follow the path that the little girls’ needles and floss originally took but as we research the girls, we also follow a meandering thread back through time casting a light onto their lives.

Ann and Isabella are two very special samplers. They are special not only as they are very, very beautiful samplers but also because they were stitched by two sisters. Both the sisters were 10 years of age when they stitched their samplers, Isabella in 1829 and Ann 6 years later in 1835. As a collector sister samplers particularly fascinate me. I find it so remarkable that two samplers remain together through the centuries.

Ann has been reproduced using the colours on the front of the samplers in 2016."
