I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Punto Antico in Veneto is Volume 6 in Giuliana Buonpadre's collection of instructional and project books on reticello and other forms of Italian needlelace and stitchery.

This volume contains diagrams and instructions for several projects which combine punto antico with reticello.

The text is in Italian, French, & English.

"In this book I illustrate the creation of a sampler which is the culmination of a research project I carried out with a group of highly skilled and motivated students, and embroidered by one of their number. I demonstrate step by step the main stitches and motifs she used, and give instructions, detailed diagrams and scans of various parts of the work (a table centre, 55 x 55 cm).

The book then looks at a sampler made by another student, this time a rectangular table centre, and finally a small tablecloth measuring 90 x 90 cm (white on white), a real gem which showcases the application of the School's research into punto antico in the Veneto region."

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.
