Tapestry and Needlepoint Kits
Shaker Wedding Sampler
Tapestry Designer: Karen Dixon
A stunning wedding sampler inspired by one of the most
beautiful quilts to survive & now housed in the Henry
Ford Museum & Greenfield Village, Dearborn, Michigan,
USA. The original quilt was made by or for Sarah Furman
Warner about 1800 and depicts a busy day in the life of
Greenfield Hill, Connecticut, a small New England village.
In my adaptation of the original design, I have focused
on the church & the happy couple & retained the
beautiful border of scrolling foliage & colourful
flowers spilling from central vases. An alphabet is
included in the kit for you to personalise the design.
The tapestry measures 11¾”
x 11¼” (30cm x 29cm) and is worked on 12 gauge canvas.
It is available on either printed canvas or unprinted
canvas suitable for a pillow or cushion.
