I have been working on this sampler for almost two years and I’m so excited to finally bring it to you. This is a faithful reproduction of an antique sampler that I purchased in 2019. The original is stitched on linen with wool threads. From the wildly colored butterflies to the tiny sun to Lady Man himself, I knew this sampler had to be reproduced. Nothing is known about the stitcher, but I imagine her as the little sister of Lady Man and she’s doing everything she can to bring him down a notch or two with needle and thread.
Model stitching: This model could not have been stitched by anyone other than Kyle Rekemeyer. Thank you my friend.
