**July 30, 2017: The needlework shop is currently unavailable. I am sorry for the inconvenience, but we are currently performing some major website maintenance, remodeling the shop storage area (i.e., everything is in boxes!!) and conducting a thorough inventory of all we have on hand. It is my hope to have everything completed within the next month. My goal is to have everything back up and running by October 6, 2017. As soon as I know exactly when the shop will reopen, I will post that information here. Please check back! Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Hello and welcome to The Mad Samplar Needlework Shop! I am an online business located in the foothills of the beautiful North Carolina mountains. I have owned The Mad Samplar Needlework Bookstore since 2003, but, in 2015, I decided I wanted to expand my love of samplers and started creating this shop. After much thought and research, I decided to specialize in reproduction sampler patterns along with the finest materials and supplies available on the market. There are a few unique patterns and kits that aren't "reproduction", but, for the most part, I wanted to create a shop dedicated to sampler lovers!

So, grab a cup of coffee or tea, sit back and enjoy the wonderful and inspirational photographs of the designs. I am sure that you will find that perfect project to inspire your next heirloom or simply enhance your stash. I sincerely hope that you enjoy your visit!


P.S. The website is continually expanding, so check back often!

This website is the companion site to The Mad Samplar Needlework Bookstore. To exit the needlework shop and enter the bookstore, please click here.

Please Note: Because the website is set up to allow you to purchase supplies for each pattern, you will need to check the box next to your selection(s) even if there is only a single choice. This allows you to add multiple items to the cart when there are choices (i.e., chart, fabric, threads, etc.), but must also be done when there is only a single choice. As the website grows, there will be more instances where you will have multiple choices along with the patterns.

Below is a list of links that will take you to the specific areas of the shop:
