Lenzuola, Samplers a Punto Antico is Volume 7 in Giuliana Buonpadre's collection of instructional and project books on reticello and other forms of Italian needlelace and stitchery.

The book focuses on sheets (bed linens) and samplers, continuing the theme of reticello in color explored in Volume 5, Fior de Reticello.

Included here are detailed instructions with diagrams and photos for a pink sampler which abounds in reticello and punto antico elements.

The album also features an alphabet in Gobelin stitch.

The book also contains instructions for both fitted and flat sheets, with diagrams that can be used on multiple household decorative items.

The various motifs within the book will help expand the repertoire of stitchers exploring the decorative aspects of reticello and other similar needlelace techniques.

If you are new to reticello and other forms of needle lace, you may wish to begin your explorations with volume 3, Il Reticello. If you are familiar with the basics of reticello, hardanger, and similar forms of needlework and you want to explore further, this volume, as well as the others by Giuliana Buonpadre will help you do that will help you do that.
