3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 4 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not what I hoped for or expected. I was looking for a cross-stitch pattern book containing patterns for traditional Welsh motifs and samplers. Instead, this is a research document showing various examples of Welsh samplers, with no patterns. Not many pages either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 10 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very interesting text and good quality pictures. The idea to have Welsh and English side by side means you can learn Welsh at the same time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's learn Welsh! 21 Mar 2012
By Jane in Milwaukee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
.
I just received this little book and is a stunner! It's so little, about 5 x 7 and has only 32 pages but considering the gorgeous color pics and the fact that every word is in both Welsh and English, it's jam-packed.

It's nice that the book gives equal time to English and Welsh text. My husband's family is in England and several relatives lived in Wales for a while. I really wish I knew how to pronounce the words ... by studying the parallel titles and paragraphs, you could teach yourself to be bilingual! I counted and all but 3 pages have color close-up photos of samplers and couple portraits. The cover includes a photo of an "eisteddfod" or prize-money purse which was handed out at church ("eisteddfodau") festivities. This one is from 1908 and is in red velvet with cross stitch sewn on.

I love samplers, have stitched several and own many books on the subject. This is now a highly prized addition to my library.

I was stunned when I searched Samperi Cymreig on Amazon and found another book of the same title; I bought it and they are a great pair:

Sampleri: Cymreig: Hanes, Technegau, Enghreifftiau (Welsh Edition)

The following 2 books which are listed as sources for this book:

Samplers (The Shire Book) (This is a good one)
Samplers from the Welsh Folk Museum collection

I love samplers as well as needlework history and combining other countries' works shows such an interesting side.
