Elizabeth Taylor Sampler

Michele: I didn't have an e-mail address to contact you directly.
Here is the information:

The The Elizabeth Taylor Sampler
(previous post),
is a kit.

The Examplarery
P. O. Box 2554
Dearborn, MI 48123

The real sampler is housed
in the collections of
Winterthur Museum
5105 Kennett Pike
Winterthur, DE, 19735

My husband + I visited last Summer.
(He had travel points saved up, so we used them)
He wanted to see the trees on the grounds.
He (we) read about the variety of
trees on the estate + so we visited.

We did the 'tour' and they have
marvelous needlework there + the 17th century jacket
was on display.
What a treat.
There were several needlework samplers
on the walls - during the tour.

Anyhow, after we did the tour
+ walked thru the trees for a few hours,
we ended up at the gift shop.
DH really liked the sampler (we found the kit in the
Museum gift shop) kit + he bought it.

I still need to graph the names for the center; however,
it may be easier to just start stitching it!!!

I am guessing it can still be
ordered from The Examplarery
or Winterthur Gift Shop. Or,
your LNS may be able to help.

(Winterthur will be closed to the public
January 10-February 28, 2011,
re-opening on March 1)

Elizabeth Taylor Sampler

I have so many beautiful needlework
kits ---

This kit was picked out
with my DH. He liked the trees.
I liked the fruit baskets + hearts.

I haven't graphed out the
family names for the center area.

I have decided to use our
family names - not the ones
on the pattern.

So it will be a reproduction
sampler - sort of ...
