Nashville 2019

Victorian Rose will have two new releases in the Hoffman booth at Nashville in two weeks. The first shown here is Honnor Harrison 1835 stitched on 36 Lakeside Vintage Lentil with Needlepoint Inc silk.  Honnor resides in the sampler collection of Victorian Rose Needlearts. The second reproduction being released is Amelie Lambert’s sweet homage to her parents first stitched in 1844. Amelie is stitched on 32 ct Picture This Plus Legacy linen using Needlepoint Inc silks. Amelie Lambert is in the Whitman Collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and is reproduced with the permission of the museum.  A conversion to DMC has been provided for both.

Coming soon…

Victorian Rose is entering a new venture. Soon we will be opening a new web store. Along with our own charts, we will be carrying other favorites, including Hands Across the Sea, Long Dog, Carriage House, Scarlett House, Merry Wind, With Thy Needle and Thread, and of course lots of wonderful fabric! Check back on news about our opening, which we plan on being in about two weeks. In the meantime, we’re busy stocking up lots and lots of goodies.

Terry’s Amazing Progress on Alice!

Just amazed by the work of Terry Gaab Niemczura! After only 8 weeks this is her progress on Alice Smith.  Absolutely incredible work, Terry! Looking forward to your progress updates.  A bit of info on Terry’s version: she’s stitching on the called for Lakeside Pecan Butter using 46 ct and has converted the DMC to Tudor silks.  She has stitched the sampler as charted except has given the seated woman a face and mob cap.

Also on the way, Amelie Lambert 1844

Amelie Lambert stitched her sweet sampler in the year 1844.  We see from her sampler the love she had for her parents and just adore the precious pup waiting for Amelie to return home. The sampler was probably her first effort as a young schoolgirl.  Often similar samplers were stitched as a precursor to more elaborate samplers.  Reproduced by permission from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, part of the Whitman Collection.
