MARGARET HOYLAND (1744)Margaret stitched her sampler at the age of 13 under the instruction of Mary Craik. This sampler is of Scottish origin as indicated by the ornate, decorative lettering and the small Scotty dog so typical of Scottish samplers. The original sampler is illustrated in "Samplers in the European Tradition" no.15 formerly in the collection of the Essamplaire. It is a rather late date to have been worked entirely in reversible stitches.
Stitches used are reversible cross, one which forms a cross on the back and the other a square stitch on the back, algerian eye, satin, double running, cross over one, four sided, chain and
buttonhole stitch.
