Mute But Not Silent Mystery Story and Sampler Tilte

Mute But Not Silent Image

Mute But Not Silent is a 17th century-style sampler with a mystery story. Each chapter of the story coincides with the historically symbolic motifs of the sampler. Clues, hidden within both the sampler and the story, will be revealed during the workshop in order to discover the solution to the mystery.

The year is 1790.  A Captain returns home after a long journey at sea to discover his wife and young son are gone. Can he possibly unravel the mystery of their disappearance from the motifs and symbolism stitched in a young girl's sampler?

Finished Size: 12” x 18”

Fabric: 32 count Lambswool Linen

There will be an autopsy of several types of sampler stitches and some wonderful hemstitching. This is a premeditated murder so some plotting and pre class preparation is required. (Basting and mounting to scroll bars.)
