Miss Susanna Millne 1843  - Reproduction sampler by Hands Across the Sea Samplers.

Susanna finished her beautiful sampler on July 24, 1843 when she was ten years old. Queen Victoria had only been on the English throne for six years and married to Prince Albert for three.Susanna was born in Faversham in1834 to Joseph Millne, a school master, and his wife Mary. She was their second youngest of 11 children and went on to live to sixty nine years of age. Susanna put her needle skills to good use and became a milliner. She married a tailor Thomas Patching and together they ran an outfitters at 18 Preston Street Faversham. They had one daughter Susie. Faversham is a historic Market Town in Kent, the beautiful Garden County of England. With prime hops and barley being grown on its doorstep and an ample supply of pure water from its deep wells Faversham became renown for its beers. Hops feature profusely inthe meandering border of Susanna’s sampler together with vases of flowers and a large basket with an over blown rose and daffodil. Two cheeky larks sing proudly amongst the brambles. Susanna, who is depicted on the chart in later life, was a fine embroiderer with an excellent eye for colour. Her beautiful sampler is suitable for all abilities and we hope you have many enjoyable hours recreating her legacy to us.
