For over 50 years, thousands of kits were sold to stitching enthusiasts throughout the world. The entire collection consists of nearly 300 designs depicting a variety of classic sampler themes including traditional antique sampler reproductions, Victorian heirloom samplers, Pennsylvania Dutch samplers, and samplers featuring holiday, religious, humorous, and children’s themes."
