Author(s): Jane Greenoff
To celebrate Jane Greenoff's 30th year of stitching, this new edition of her classic best-selling book includes brand new sampler charts, an extended stitch library and more inspirational examples of antique samplers from Jane's collection. Jane Greenoff uses her own historical samplers as the inspiration for 13 unique designs so that you can begin a collection of your very own. Each project chapter is inspired by a popular sampler style, including alphabet samplers, map samplers, darning samplers, band samplers and house samplers. There's also a beautiful sampler box with storage for your sewing accessories, which is Jane's anniversary project.
Jane Greenoff, managing director of the Cross Stitch Guild, is one of the most successful and popular cross stitch designers in the world. She is the author of 16 books.
