|Sarah Siddall - Scarlet Letter|
When I picked this sampler up from the framer there was a **stain** on the linen. I was very upset.
and the framer insisted that she did not do it. Well with a little hard work and advise from
The Attic, I removed the stain. Oh, the challenges being a needle artist! I love this sampler..
****Reply to questions:
1. Not a kit. I used suggested AVAS silks. Linen is 36ct Buttercream. It is a gorgeous buttery color.
2. To remove the stain. I put a cotton pad on the back and mixed a tear drop or less of dish soap in warm water. Then I used a cotton swab with a little bit of the soap/water solution. Just a little bit and blotted with another cotton pad. It did the trick.
3. Yes, I would have noticed a stain when I bought it to the framer. I am meticulous about my needlework. I always wash my hands before I stitch and always keep all food and drinks away.
