Early Colonies/Historical Patterns

I've been doing some cross stitching after a few years of putting it down. I really like the Smithsonian samplers of cross stitch and patterns featuring the early colonies here. Would anyone have an idea as to where I could get patterns of early colonial life in America? Thanks...

You might contact some of the stitchery places in the states who were part of the early colonies. Also, you can convert pictures to cross stitch with computer programs. I will be going to that area in about a month and will keep my eyes open for shops that have that kind of patterns/kits etc.

Try the National Park Service. I have seen stitchery kits of historic scenes for sale in many of their bookstores.

Dicentra--Go to the link below for beautiful reproduction sampler patterns. You might also try an internet search for reproduction sampler patterns or kits. Many people offer beautiful copies and/or interpretations of the real things!

Here is a link that might be useful: The Scarlet Letter
