    Hi I’ve just finished this sampler myself. It’s took me years to complete and it’s very dirty and needs to be washed. I’m petrified. Did you wash yours and if so was there any bleeding from the yarns? Appreciate your help.

    • Hi Adele, Well done on getting it finished πŸ™‚ I never need to wash needlework as I work on a frame and keep it bagged when I’m not sewing. It’s easy to keep clean on a frame. I seem to remember reading on the instructions to wash some of the threads before use (maybe the reds/blues). All I can suggest at the moment is to tie some of your leftover threads around a small piece of aida then wash it and see what happens before risking your lovely sampler. I’m wondering whether you have a blog. If so, write a post about it. If not, I’d be happy to ask the blogging community on your behalf here if you’d give me permission to quote your comment. I know they’d be willing to share their methods.
