Hands Across The Sea Samplers is a new design studio formed by two friends Nicola and Sandra. Our studios specialize in reproducing fine antique samplers to the highest standards from Nicola’s personal collection of museum quality samplers. Whilst mainly English the collection is extensive and diverse, several have been exhibited and featured in reference books.

All our charts are produced in full colour and are graphed with both symbols and colour blocks for ease of reference. Our samplers are designed using Au Ver A Soie “Soie D’Alger” (AVAS) and a DMC conversion is provided. Our models are stitched exclusively on Lakeside Linens with AVAS silks.

Occasionally we have antique needlework for sale.
