Here we are in the midst of Summer of 2021. What a strange mid-point between a life changing year of pandemic and a slow trudge back toward a “new normal”. We are currently operating Online Only while we complete the restoration of our new shop home in the historic Zebulon H. Baird House in Woodfin, NC, just a few mile closer to town than our previous space. We hope to be in our new home this Fall, and we look forward to seeing your smiling faces sometime soon.
We chose the Phoenix as symbol of 2021 and created a small freebie for you of a phoenix arising from the ashes. Many thanks to Allie Dudley for putting my vision into charted design. I hope you like it and find a bit of time to stitch it as a marker of this odd year in which we find ourselves. The download link is below for you.
We are currently working with a high volume of orders. Many orders ship next day, while some require additional processing time and will encounter a delay. Please feel free to reach out for an update on an order more than a week old.
Thank you again for continuing to support our shop.

In our first newsletter, we gave away a small sampler that I found locally here in an antique shop. It reads: “Tho Oceans Wide Between Us Roar, Tho Distant Be Our Lot, Tho Should I Never See Thee More, Dear Friend Forget Me Not.” This was the perfect sentiment for the goal of our shop, to reach our friends near and wide, and offer them a place to belong. You can still find this in our first newsletter, but we wanted to put it here for your as well. During this very challenging times, we value our friends and our family most of all. Please enjoy stitching this sweet sampler for yourself or a friend.

New & Notable Arrivals
Sassafras Samplers is so excited to announce the.pdf release of our latest Reproduction Sampler, Margaret White 1841. Margaret is a gorgeous little Scottish Sampler with some wonderful Dutch Motifs. She’s very close to my heart as she was given as a wedding gift from some good friends and resided prior to that in the private collection of another friend, Lorraine Mootz. She’s a great stitch on Aida or Linen, and we’ve created a series of kits using NPI silks and WDW Straw linen or a beautiful Aida from PTP. I hope you’ll stitch Margaret with us and enjoy some warm thoughts about love and friendship.
We’re super excited to bring you the third in a series of four new original designs from our own design house, Sassafras Samplers. This in Adder’s Fork, design No. 3 in the Spooky Shakespeare series from Sassafras Samplers. The series takes the famous “Boil and Bubble, Toil and Trouble” scene from Macbeth and breaks it into four fun and spooky designs. As an ode to the “Scottish” setting of Macbeth, we’ve surrounded each of the four designs in a border from one of our antique Scottish Samplers. We’ve also included a little bonus chart for those who collect all four designs! Each of the four designs has a band that when put together gives you a small original design “sampler”, also drawing from Macbeth. This bonus chart also includes the borders from our Scottish Samplers. I hope you’ll give this a try and enjoy the stitch! We’ve kitted on Tin Roof from Weeks Dye Works and have this linen available in 32ct. through 40ct. Click on Fenny Snake for all things Spooky Shakespeare!
We released another beautiful Scottish Sampler at our September Soiree, Christian Henry 1816. Christian is a wonderful stitch with an alphabet at the top and a spot sampler section at the bottom. There are some wonderful motifs in that spot motif section and some fabulous color. Christian must have been a very imaginative and happy little girl. We are so grateful to Jacob de Graaf, of Modern Folk Embroidery, for so generously researching the genealogy of our Christian for us. You can purchase all things Christian Henry 1816 by clicking on the picture of the sampler.
