Create your own sampler by adding text to one of our custom sampler designs. These have a fixed width and height that can't be changed and have limited space so keep your text to a minimum and choose as small a font as required that will allow all your words to fit.

Enter your settings and text:

(see Notes below)

(recommended to leave blank for auto-height)


  • The Font '-pt' indicates how many stitches high the letters are for comparison. Use the smaller 'pt' letters if you need to fit a lot of words into a small space.
  • Leave the Height blank to let the program determine height or: -Enter your desired height in the same units as your stitched width. Choose a smaller font or enter a larger height if your lines of text do not all fit (or just leave height blank). For our free trial the height is limited to 100 stitches (280 stitches is the maximum possible height).
  • The fabric count (how many stitches per inch) is only required for the calculation of your stitched size. If you're stitching 'over 2' on linen enter only 1/2 the count (i.e. 28ct linen 'over 2' = 14ct)
  • Only un-check 'word wrap' if you want to enter your own carriage returns (or if pasting text that is already formatted with newlines) otherwise don't press enter at the end of lines (except to explicitly start a new paragraph) and your text will automatically wrap at your selected page width.
  • The Font Color is only for the chart and can be changed for readability. (of course you can stitch with any thread color of your choice).
