This sampler can be worked by all levels of embroiderers, if you enjoy counted thread such as cross-stitch, canvas work and blackwork you will love working this sampler. The Hapsburg lace sampler is great for beginners in canvas work embroidery as the stitches are easy and fun to do.

A beautiful lacy sampler is worked using pearl cotton on an 18 count mono canvas. Five lacy patterns are worked in five canvas work stitches to create the lacy sampler. The sampler can be hung either end as a bell pull or framed.

The photos show the sampler worked in variegated Valdani #12 spun gold pearl cotton on black 18 count mono canvas and white No. 8 DMC perle cotton worked on antique blue 18 count mono canvas. The spun gold has a beautiful old world look that does not show up well in the photos of the sampler, a picture of the thread colour is below.

This sampler looks great worked in any coloured mono canvas with a contrasting pearl cotton colour. See the other Hapsburg lace designs on this webpage to see the different colour canvas and threads that can be used.

If you purchase the instruction booklet alone you can choose your own colour canvas and contrasting pearl cotton thread. If you dislike French knots, beads have proven to be an appealing substitute (to the embroiderer and the admirer), the choice is yours.

I am offering free correspondence and free on going critique for this kit, for more details go to - Free on going critique.

A recommended tool for making a nice large hole at the center of the eyelet stitch is a stiletto. I suggest either the Brass Stiletto or Bone Handle Stiletto or the Hardwood Handle Stiletto which can be purchased by clicking on the links.
