Join teacher Barbara Kershaw in Fandango, a Group Correspondence Course focused on Punto Antico, one of many beautiful styles of Italian whitework embroidery.

Punto Antico embroidery includes a lot of satin stitch, Palestrina and bullion knots, curls and scrolls. Italian hemstitch is also an integral part of any deign as well as drawn thread areas with sometime simple and may times intricate needlewoven insertions. No matter if simple or intricate it is a beautiful form of whitework.

The design was created as a pillow band but instruction for an alternate end to create the runner are included in the text.
