A Short History of Cross Stitch Cross stitches are dated back to the 6th or 7th century as a form of embroidery with counted threads. It was originally common to decorate household items such as napkins, tablecloths and even pillows, often with floral or geometric patterns. Most early pieces were machined in black and red cotton floss on a simple linen fabric, giving a rather distinct look that is highly appreciated by collectors and enthusiasts seeking a traditional look today. Design has also been found in Coptic tombs in Egypt, preserved almost perfectly thanks to the dry climate of the desert.Henry VIII's first wife, Catherine of Aragon, famously took a sewing technique called blackwork from her native Spain over to England. Blackwork is now supposed to have strongly influenced the development of embroidery in modern cross stitches. In fact, Catherine used to put embroidery in the king's shirts herself and cause a pretty sense in her own time.Most historical pieces are preserved in the form of samplers, often in the form of a prayer, a hymn or another popular motto or proverb. In 1797, many children from an orphanage near Calcutta in Bengal had the unusual task of making the longest chapter in the Bible, the 19th psalm, in cross-stitch form.Many sewing pattern books were very popular in Europe and America during the 18th century and often presented a number of samplers as examples and inspirations. The patterns are usually printed as black boxes or dots on the side, which gives the choice of colors to the person who does the embroidery - very sensible at a time when colorful yarns were extremely expensive and so many poorer needlecrafters had to color their own thread with anything material they got hand!The earliest surviving sampler with date on it is sewn by an English girl named Jane.
