If you love samplers, this is for you!,
This review is from: Cross Stitch Antique Style Samplers: Over 30 Cross Stitch Designs Inspired by Traditional Samplers (Hardcover)
This is a lovely compilation of traditional sampler knowledge sparked with modern ideas. If you like the traditional, there are many, many motifs and stitches you can use in a traditional way, together with illustrations and designs for all the major types of classic sampler---house samplers, maps, band samplers, motifs etc. But there are also fresh ideas and combinations that make the traditional forms fresh and interesting. Everything is very clearly explained, with clear instructions even on techniques for finishing the various projects. A delight to pore over, and the projects offer immense scope both for stitching them as shown and for combining their various elements into original compositions. Any stitcher will love this one!
