Throughout 2013, the talented members of the Loudoun Sampler Guild designed and stitched a Mystery Band Sampler. In response to interest in this project, the Loudoun Sampler Guild is making the charts available for purchase. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the charts go to the Grant Fund (click the link to the right to learn more about the Grant Fund).

The basic format was this: 11 bands (one per month) which are 200 threads wide and no more than 100 threads deep, stitched from the bottom up. The final band (at the top) is a spot motif area, incorporating specialty stitches. On 32-count linen, the maximum stitched area would be about 39 x 6 inches.

But wait, there’s more! Our January and May designers provided two band designs, and there is a stag-deer block as an alternate to the spot motif area. You may add these bands or substitute them.

Our members’ work, shown in four pages of color photos included with the 26 pages of charts, demonstrate that there are no limits on variety or number of colors, fabric, specialty stitches, and other variations!
