History of Echoes and Echoes II Samplers

Years ago I stitched the original Echoes of Elizabeth Sampler and it proved to be one of my most popular ever samplers.

 

It isn't Elizabethan, it is simply inspired by Elizabethan motifs:

Blackwork, cutwork, lavish beads and Tudor Roses. The sampler is dense and very busy, almost every space filled with no breathing room. I've noticed this about Elizabethan designs, dense and busy with patterns, and I tried to capture this.

 

As with so much of what I stitch, there is no historical model, it is just my fantasy about something that belonged to another time.

 

As a point of interest, this was the last project I taught at a guild sampler, way back when EGA was in San Francisco. I don't remember the date, but I think it was about 8 or 9 years ago.

 

 

When I took the last stitch of the original sampler, I started planning the pair for it, but I didn't stitch it till 2016 when suddenly the time seemed right. It was two years ago that I stitched the pair, the newer one called 'Echoes II: Tudor Rose Sampler. In it I combined the York and Lancaster Roses, along with the Tudor Rose and Crown in the center.

 

The original Echoes of Elizabeth has 6 cutwork squares. If you are afraid of cutwork and you have Echoes II, you will find patterns for Imitation Cutwork that will work as well on the original Echoes.

 

 

Description

The he original Echoes of Elizabeth Sampler is approximately 9 1/2" x 13" on a piece of white congress cloth 14" x 17".

 

The threads include Overdyed Thread Gatherer silk, Soie d'Alger, Impressions, pearl cotton and a lot of Kreinik braid. The pearls include several different sizes and the beads are assorted shapes and styles. I also used some vintage sequins and seed beads.

 

The stitches include a wide variety of modern patterns to reflect the style of Elizabethan work.

 

The kit includes the instructions, a color copy of my finished sampler, all threads, all beads and white congress cloth.

 

The instructions are 50 pages long plus a title page. There are 7 oversize graphs and a color copy of my sampler as well.

* Re the Non-Refundable $50.00 deposit:

if for some reason I can't deliver the kit, obviously I will refund your deposit.

A Note about the Beads for the Original Echoes of Elizabeth

I stopped selling the Original Echoes because I ran out of a couple of the beads. As luck would have it, right after I finished Echoes II, I found some good substitutes.  That's why I am offering it again.
