Evelina Benoit is another sampler from the
collection of Evelina Baird. As with most of
Mrs. Baird's ancestry (who is one of the very
few people lucky enough to have been able to
collect quite a number of her long line of rela-
tives sampler pieces). This person is also pur-
ported to have come from the German area of
Pennsylvania, was a seamstress to many promi-
nent people of that time.

This sampler has a very nice history that continues
on the chart. Sampler was reproduced on 30 count
hand-dyed linen with Old Willow threads with a
DMC conversion.

The stitch count on this design is 189w X 118h.
