Greek Sampler 1828

Another great sampler reproduction headed your way!! May I present to all of you Greek Sampler 1828 from the island of Chios, Greece.
The original sampler was stitched in wool on a 26ct linen; unfortunately the name was removed.  How fun to see the bright colors used along with the Greek Alphabet!  Reproduced using Lakeside Linen Vintage Meadow Rue with Gloriana, NPI and a Belle Soie silk, it is a stunning reproduction :) 
Its rare to see a sampler from Greece, we see a lot of beautiful embroidery, but this is one to add to the collection!!


  1. Uh, oh. My new DIL is Greek. I see a sampler to work on in my future. She's actually in Greece now!

  2. It´s very nice i like it very much. Have a nice day
