"A type of sampler combining stitches to make patterns was still being made in schools in the 1950s. These samplers were usually worked in brightly coloured yarns on binca canvas with prominent squared holes in the mesh, making it easier to count stitches."

 

My life is becoming more historical with every year!! (Although obviously it was the 60's when I was binca sewing in school!!)
