Herbularius Tips, Hints and Errata

Erroneous color in Instructions


  • The instructions erroneously state that one should use GLO 023 for the dense Rhodes stitches.  The correct color should be GLO 025 - Purple Night Sky.

Heritage Sampler - From the Designer

“I designed a large sampler which honors the generations of women who came before us, and leaves space for the ones which will come after us....

I found out by my father’s genealogy research that all of the women in our family have had a "thing" with flowers/plants/herbs...some were gardeners at their farmhouses, one was a midwife well known for her various plant remedies - later generations had a garden for


So it was an idea to have a sampler which shows the heritage of women back into time - each of us deals with plants, loves flowers and their variety -- and a garden

What you can see here … is a sampler which will be as big as YOU will want it - be it that you will work it for three + one future generation, or without, or for more then three -- it is

versatile [and] changeable to your needs.

Once you [have] finished this very special sampler you will have a piece of family history to hand to coming generations so they can include their names even, if you leave one or more “free lines”…..

The threads used can be variegated silks but as well the DMC conversions I will give. One or two

metallics -- and a few beads.. etc. You know what I love to use.”

Personalized Names

Cherries Band


  • The last cherry motif is off by one stitch. The entire motif needs to be moved one stitch to the left in order to line up properly with the others. Please pay close attention to this particular motif as it is repeated as needed.

Outer Border

Personalized Names

Cherries Band


  • In the very outer border, there is an intentional variation within the border. This is designed to make sure the border matches up on all sides and is not an error.
