Yesterday we saw a Norwich School Sampler for Auction at Woolley and Wallis on 5 April, and here today is a typical design from these 18th and 19th century Norwich School Samplers which you can download free now. The following DMC colours provide a good palette: 3750, 3051, 786, 1734, 729, 832, 3046 with the birds and the french knots for the lions faces worked with two strands of black or, more subtler, dark grey. Just click here for the download again if you missed it the first time.
