Sampler Berry

Sampler Berry - silk and linen

Sampler Berry

These berries include some of the borders, flowers, creatures we're familiar with – and are absolutely charming on these berries. Easy to personalize for yourself or a stitching friend!

Some 'scrunched-up' old lace tops the silk berry, while the linen berry sports a square of brown wool and silk ribbon.

NOTE: Silk and linen berry chartpaks have been sold separately for some time, and copies are likely still available from numerous retailers. However, due to the lack of silk gauze available for the foreseeable future, Sampler Berry will be sold as a “partner” chartpak. This new format will include instructions and charts for both berries - but no silk gauze.
