This collection of cross-stich samplers and other display pieces was inspired by the decorative arts produced during the Renaissance period. Some of the designs are based directly on work done by young needlewomen of the period, when the sampler had become the established form of recording and showing off stitching skills. Other work is taken from contemporary architecural embellishments, rich dress fabrics and graphic tile designs. The projects presented include some for all levels of ability. Each is charted in colour and is accompanied by photographs of the source material behind the design.
