Announcing The Women of the Mayflower Sampler ~ Coming September 5th 2020! (this is not a series)
2020 marks the 400th celebration of the arrival of the Mayflower. It is also the 400th anniversary of the arrival of needlework to America. Did you know, needlework came to America with the women of the Mayflower?
Get ready to partake in 66 days (number of days the Mayflower was at sea) of stitching to honor these women. The release date for this design will be September 6th, the date the Mayflower left Plymouth England. The ending date for the series will be Nov 9th, the day the Mayflower landed in Cape Cod. With some good stitching time, this sampler can be, realistically, completed in the 66 days.
The kit coming from WTN&T will include the sampler pattern, a piece of finishing fabric for the small design that is a replica of a hand-written page from William Bradford's journal and a free pattern for a smaller design all enclosed in a lovely, custom printed, colored box for the kit.
We will be offering this kit with fabric and threads which will be announced in early April. We will open this kit for sale (orders) as soon as we know the supplies and costs. If you would like to join our pre-release sign-up list you can do so by sending an email from the 'Contact Us' tab above or by responding to our newsletter that will be sent out soon. We need to have our order in to WTN&T no later than June 15th.
*There will be a Facebook group formed for this commemorative sampler. The focus of the group will be to share stitching progress and fellowship for participants. We will also be using a hashtag for Instagram posts. More information to follow on this. The official Women of the Mayflower Facebook page will be created by Brenda of WTN&T only!
