If you don’t remember, you are certainly in for a treat. Come check it out at
Victorian Rose Needlearts is teaching two classes on Friday, October 14th. We would love to see you there!

Spirit of Cross Stitch


Victorian Rose Needlearts will be teaching the Ann Topham sampler in Richmond in October.  In executing this lovely Adam & Eve sampler, the student will learn to do freehand embroidery, chain stitch, four-sided, and over one and over two cross stitch.  There will also be a lecture on architecture in 18th and 19th century samplers with a slide show and the opportunity to stitch a small red house sampler.
