Several band samplers very similar to this one are in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London as well as in other important collections. This particular sampler came from the collection of The Scarlet Letter, and is now in a private collection. A similar color scheme appears on these samplers. similar pattern bands, suggesting that a certain teacher taught these girls.

Typical of 17th century samplers, Ann Scutt's displays intricate pattern and color variations demonstrating how innovative a girl could be with a limited color palette and some considerable skill with the needle. Our reproduction is almost identical in size and color to the original.

Stitches used are cross, Montenegrin cross, double running, back, eyelet and tent, all clearly diagrammed in the instructions. The graph has been printed in full color to illustrate the color changes in areas worked in double running stitch.

The model was stitched on 35 count linen with a finished size of approximately 7" x 26".
