Some of you may remember that the Delaware Valley Historic Sampler Guild members have been stitching A Petit Sampling Etui as a guild project.
Here are Pat L., Lynn D., Jane G., and Stacy S. with their finished etuis. (Poor Stacy! I sure hope you're not right-handed.)

The design for this needlework etui was a collaboration of four design companies: Cherished Stitches, Praiseworthy Stitches, The Stitching Parlor, and With My Needle. There is a different sampler on each side. You can either make the designs into an etui, as the members of the Delaware Historic Sampler Guild did, or frame the samplers individually.
This special project was limited to 2000 charts. When these charts are gone, no more will be available.
Ladies, you are to be commended for your outstanding work. As you well know, this project has lots and lots of stitching. I hope you enjoyed stitching your etui as much as my friends and I did designing it. Thank you for the photos.
I'm very excited about teaching for your guild next April. I hope all of you will bring your etuis for me to see in person!
