Christian Geissinger, 1839

I'm pleased to announce the release of Christian Geissinger, 1839. I fell in love with the unusual rose border, so striking! The sampler was stitched by a boy stitcher 180 years ago. My model stitcher, Robert Smith, insisted on stitching the reproduction for me in Gentle Arts Simply Wool. It was stitched on 32 ct Picture This Plus Earthen and framed by Edie Antl of Art Etc Picture Framing in a mahogany frame that really showcases the sampler nicely. Edie does a lot of framing by mail, as well as having a brick and mortar shop in Cleveland, OH.
