Alyce Schroth Samper

I found the Alyce Schroth site: http://www.alyceschroth.com/ and she is still designing samplers and kitting them up with her own hand-dyed linens and silks. This "German Band Sampler" is a kitted example and sells for $41.00! I love the soft colors and I know her silks are great to work with. She has some smalls and pincushions, as well as other samplers. And, she sells her threads separately, of course.

For those who care, I now have a translation for the freebie French Sampler I listed in a former blog (below)! If you're interest in the details, please email me: interiorsbydeb2@aol.com I think I'm going to stitch mine on a pale blue 32 ct. fabric with NPI silks....


I'm also going to start some new things, because, what the heck!!??? Aren't we doing this for the fun of it? :)


Closing with a picture.... Hugs, Deb in FL where the sun is always shining even when it's raining!

What a beautiful Sampler. Can't wait to see what new starts you decide on!

That's a gorgeous sampler, Deb. You do have impeccable taste!!

That's a lovely sampler. It looked German to me, 'cause I've done a German sampler myself (stitched it, not designed it) and some elements looked familiar.
Good for you for starting some new projects. Sometimes you just have to :o)

Wow, she's got some really pretty samplers! I agree with you totally about this hobby of ours and that it's meant to be fun! I have to remind myself of that when I see all my unfinished projects laying around! :)

I have a couple skeins of AS silk floss in my stash. Think I bought it at the Boise ns many years ago and never have seen it anywhere since. It's nice to see that she is still designing and dyeing. :)

This is a beautiful sampler. I love how the reds really pop out at you.
New projects?!? I love new projects. I'm looking forward to seeing what you decided to start.
