Helen M Stevens
Masterclass Classic Sampler I: The Embroiderer's Countryside & Sampler II: The Embroiderer's Country Album
The samplers featured in these collections are a labour of love that Helen first crafted in the late 1980s. They have since travelled the world with her, gracing classrooms and exhibitions. Now, for the first time, these vintage design sheets are available for embroidery enthusiasts everywhere.
These templates bear witness to the longevity of Pipers Silks' threads. In Helen's own words "the colours remain as vibrant as they were in the days before the digital age." Helen's generosity extends to sharing her expertise, with each motif illustrated in detail, complete with working notes and anecdotes.
In a nod to her live classes, Helen has left the choice of colour to the individual stitcher. While she hasn't provided strict colour charts, she has suggested colours similar to those used in the originals. For the past 40 years, Pipers Silks has been a steadfast partner in ensuring that their Floss Silk threads match the original shades as closely as possible.
