Hands Across The Sea Samplers Limited is a design studio that was formed by two friends Nicola and Sandra. The studio specializes in reproducing fine antique samplers to the highest standards from Nicola’s personal collection of museum quality samplers. Whilst mainly English the collection is extensive and diverse, several have been exhibited and featured in reference books.

All our charts are produced in full colour and are graphed with both symbols and colour blocks for ease of reference. Our samplers are designed using Au Ver A Soie “Soie D’Alger” and “Soie 100.3”. A DMC conversion is provided.

At the very core of Hands Across the Sea Samplers is a team of needleworkers who are passionate about antique samplers and being able share those samplers with you.
