Isabella Uffindell, 1829 is a beautiful sampler from Hands Across the Sea.

The sampler has been stitched using cross stitch over two threads with a small number of cross stitches over 1 thread (e.g. Isabella's name, age and the King's initials "GR". This sampler has been rated as suitable for an intermediate stitcher but is not beyond a determined beginner wishing to explore satin stitch.

    About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:

    "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.

    Isabella and Ann 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."
