Dropcloth Samplers is a line of hand-drawn embroidery samplers, printed and ready for you to jump in and start stitching right away. Each pattern is hand drawn by Rebecca Ringquist in her Portland, Oregon studio, and printed for you to embroider with your own color and thread choices. We like to describe them as coloring book pages for embroidery- there's no preparation necessary- they arrive ready to stitch. The first two samplers, Original and Sequel, were designed with the stitch names printed right on the cloth. You stitch as you learn, creating a lasting reference for all future embroidery projects.
The Milky Way Sampler:
After the popularity of the Paisley Sampler, I wanted to design another jam packed embroidery project full of celestial inspired designs. Stars wind their way through a dense field of running stitches and potential rainbows. We used primarily back stitch, running stitch, and french knots. You can use your own handful of favorite stitches to make this fun project your own. We used a combination of size 8 perle cotton and embroidery floss. Our example is stitched in a green to purple palette- what colors will you chose for yours?
