Why a blog? Why call it a Club?
Stitchers are essentially a friendly bunch of people. The end result will be to sell the chart of Martha’s Sampler, and I’d much rather think of those who end up with a chart as Club Members or friends, rather than merely customers.
When will the sampler be for sale?
Your guess is as good as mine. Now that I have the means to chart Martha’s Sampler, I need to put aside time in my life to get those little x’s down on the screen. I fully intend to bring you along with me as I discover those hidden gems along the path of discovery.
Who was Martha?
She must have been a formidable woman. Part of our voyage of discovery will be to try to find out more about the life of this little girl – aged 9 and her adult life. Perhaps I’ll find out how the Sampler itself travelled from England in 1840 to Australia 2010 – think of that – 170 years of adventure!
How can I put my name down to purchase this Sampler?
Simply join as a follower of this blog. Followers will be given the first opportunity to purchase Martha’s Sampler when it is ready for sale.
How will it be released?
I plan to release Martha’s Sampler as a printed chart, numbered and personalized to each individual. A limited print run will be made and these will be posted via Snail Mail. It is not my intention to release a pdf of this chart at any time. I will however, release one or two snippets of the chart – re-worked for ornaments
