Atlantic Seaboard Sampler from the Canadian Journey Series. Travel the hiking trails and watch the ships come in with their catch. Visit the iconic Green Gables and tour the abundant orchards of the Maritimes. The sampler contains 33 bands, done in a palette of DMC and over-dyed silks. Many “specialty” stitches are used – there are diagrams and written instructions for all of them, making this design approachable – if you have patience (and Google), your initial skill level with specialty stitches will not be important.
Each band is described both in terms of how to execute the stitches, and in its significance or symbolism to the sampler as a whole. Jeannette includes wonderfully interesting tidbits of science, history and lore behind each subject. You will feel the call of the Atlantic and the romance and history of the coast as you stitch this stunning sampler.
