Marsha has been reproducing samplers longer than pretty much anyone. I was lucky to tour her farmstead back in the 90s, and it continues to be a memorable day. Her reproduction charts are thorough, and come with stitch diagrams. Please know that many of them are hand-drawn charts, but they are easy to read, and so, so fun to stitch!
