What is a Round Robin?
A Round Robin is the name given to a group of stitchers (eight in this case) who get together as a group to exchange and stitch on each others samplers. Basically, each person chooses and buys their own piece of fabric (which should be linen or evenweave), colour scheme, size and “theme”. Monthly, each sampler is sent around the group for each person to work a segment in the appropriate theme of each sampler (see below). Segments, because you will be working a BAND sampler, should be long and narrow, i.e. approx 100×20 stitches in size, but in any event, you should choose a design that is easily stitchable in the given time period (approx 3 weeks, allowing a week for postage time). Everyone chooses a theme for their own sampler,and everyone will stitch a band in that theme on the owner’s sampler when they receive it. You may choose something specific such as flowers, or maybe prefer to choose just a colour scheme, or even ask that people work a few rows of their favourite stitches. Bor
