Online Workshop: Make an 18th Century School Girl Sampler

Hi friends, I hope you are well. I wanted to share with you some exciting news! I have been asked to be one of the instructors for the “Beginner’s Guide to the 18th Century” online workshop that is being hosted by The Linen Agency!

The class I will be teaching is how to create your own 18th century style “School Girl Sampler.” Not only will we learn a bit about the history of the school girl sampler, but you will also be given free original patterns and supplies to create your own sampler!

This class is open to anyone, no matter where you live because it will be done completely online! Cost of the class is $35, which includes the patterns (one easy and one intermediate skill level, so don’t worry if you’ve never done cross stitch!) as well as the cloth and embroidery floss needed for both patterns. This virtual workshop is being held Saturday, May 16 from 12-2 pm EST. You can buy your ticket for this class HERE.

There is much more to discover and learn during these two than just my class, however! There is an incredible array of classes being taught by a wide variety of instructors during this weekend. Other classes include:

“Intro to Embroidery, Basic Stitches”

“What to wear in the 18th Century”

“Make an 18th Century School Girl Sampler”

“Hand Sewing, Make a Stitch Book”

“Intro to 18th Century Fiber Arts”

“Make an Embroidered Pinball”

“Make 18th Century Mitts”

“Intro to 18th Century Furniture Construction”

“Tape Weaving”

You can find more information on all these classes HERE.

Registration is now OPEN! Sign up soon, as class spaces are limited. Hope to see you there! 😀

  1. I just signed up for your sampler class!! Old childhood samplers have always fascinated me and I am looking forward to learning more and actually making one with the kit. Thanks so much for all the links and information and I look forward to May 16th!
