Permelia Allen Sampler Stitching

In between designing, I've been stitching a sampler.  I was just able to obtain the kit for this and began it the minute it arrived.  I just finished the last stitch on it the other day and I have to say I am completely smitten with her.  
It's a beautiful reproduction sampler by The Posy Collection that is part of the Historic Deerfield Museum.  Permelia Allen was only 10 years old when she stitched the original.
Makes you smile, doesn't it?


I reached out to Posy Lough this morning and I am happy to say this kit is STILL available through the museum. The kit includes the chart and DMC threads.  I decided to use overdyed threads when stitching mine.
Here is the email I got from Posy with all the info to obtain a kit, in case any of you are interested.
Nan,
Again, thank you so much for following through on the interest in the Permelia Allen Sampler.
I had a wonderful talk with Tina Harding, the Museum Shop Buyer and Manager , who is delighted that there is an interest in the kit.
It will benefit the museum so much and she has stock for those who are ready to stitch!
Call the Historic Deerfield Museum Shop at 413-775-7170 and ask for PC- 216 Permelia Allen Sampler Kit (not available as a chart only) It is $24.95 plus shipping- when orders are placed they will give the shipping.
It isn’t on their website so I am attaching the kit front.
I am thankful for those who love our historic samplers!
All the best to you and many thanks!
Posy Lough

I know many of my stitching friends were thrilled to learn they could still get this. And it's a wonderful way to help out the museum.

Happy stitching my friends,
~Nan
