The pattern will include WTN&T's exclusive "faux sampler" linen. This time the letters are printed in a wonderful school house red colorway. The J and U are missing from the fabric and this is intentional. The alphabet is styled to look like a charted alphabet found in early pattern books from centuries ago. The English language of that time had just 24 letters. Letters J and U were missing. Since some letters were similar in appearance, they were used interchangeable, such as the I and J and the U and V.
The pattern includes full instructions for finishing along with a list of suppliers for the finishing products.
