Continental Reproduction Sampler Kits

Samplers of northern Europe are often less symmetrical than their English and American counterparts. The emphasis is more on symbolic representations or pattern records than stitch variety or pictorial formula. Religious symbols are found on almost all continental samplers, and Adam and Eve in particular is the principal motif on samplers from Protestant Northern Germany. Other frequently used motifs on this body of samplers include the Spies of Canaan carrying their cluster of grapes, the wreath carried by two crowned angels, the Free Maiden, Dutch lion, spinning monkey, Lamb of God, ships, anchors, carnations, roosters, birds and hearts, and stags, all having religious symbolic meanings. In general, cross stitch is the primary stitch used in the creation of these samplers.

Samplers are in alphabetic order by the title or last name of the stitcher. To search the list for a word or phrase, type it in the box below and click the search button. For example, type ann to find all samplers with the name ann in the title. Type a to find all stitcher's last names or titles starting with the letter A.
