I was first taken with its size...quite large. The main fabric is a large weave in a darker caramel tea stained look but even appearance cotton. The stitching is quite attractive and contrasts nicely in a lighter caramel, red, brown, green, pink, black and white. The print is in a tightly sewn red satin stitch and cleanly done accented with the other colors. The accent pattern in between and above is much lighter and an open stitch...giving it the appearance of being hand made. The frame is nicely stained finished solid wood. The corners are an applied grouping of leaves, with the look of the traditional style. I replaced the hanging brackets with wire took all of 10 min. Mine had 2 tiny wrinkles and I left them for more of that 'homemade' appeal, but the backing can be easily removed if need be, and the frame and glass can be reused for another 'project piece' in the future . I am super pleased and feel it is great value and appeal for the price!

Beautifully well made sampler. Lovely workmanship. Adore the ornate wooden frame. Looks terrific hanging above my period home dining room mantel. I have never been disappointed by any of my Victorian Trading purchases.

I really love this sampler!! What a great price for something this beautiful! The frame alone is well worth the price, and the workmanship on the stitchery is so well done! I needed to change the colors of the threads, so all I did was carefully go over the stitches with sharpie permanent markers in the colors I wanted, and it turned out incredibly beautiful! It now perfectly matches my décor. Wouldn't hesitate to tell you to feel completely safe in making this purchase for you or for a gift!

I purchased my Kindness Makes Friends Sampler for the old fashioned look of the frame and needlework. It was exactly as I hoped it would be. I have it hanging in our guest room. It will be a cherished keepsake.

I really liked the framed sampler when it arrived. it looked like an original vintage needlepoint framed picture from many years ago.
