WELCOME TO LAUREL'S STITCHERY!!
Laurel's Stitchery presents...
It's our first reproduction sampler pattern! A while back, I was able to buy a lovely little antique sampler and I decided to produce a pattern from it. It's called Esther Haight 1811. I've done some research and I'm 99% sure I've found the person who stitched this sampler. She was born October 4, 1805 to Reuben and Sarah Haight, probably near Amawalk in Westchester County, New York. She was the sixth of ten children - five boys and five girls. Esther had just turned six years old when she completed this sampler. She married Merritt Palmer on February 16, 1832 and died seven years later on July 27, 1839. I haven't been able to find any reference to any children they may have had.
The model was stitched by Renee Herman on 30-count Straw Linen by Weeks Dye Works with Week Dye Works, The Gentle Art Sampler Threads and Classic Colorworks (formerly Crescent Colours) flosses.
