This class offers a unique opportunity to stitch a 17th Century-style sampler.

The 2018 class will start with Band pattern one – the first section of an English Garden band sampler that will be stitched at Guild classes in the next 2 years. Further bands will be taught at classes in 2019 and 2020.

Band pattern one has variations of twisted arcade border enclosing a red rose, love-in-a-mist, flowers, heartsease or pansies and acorns, all stitched with silk and metal threads on 32 count linen.

Dianne Fisher is a South Australian Guild member and one of their Curators. Dianne has a Fine Arts degree.
