Reviews The almost forgotten and overlooked Lagartera embroidery originated in Spain. Here it is deservedly brought to life again by the South Australian embroiderers' Guild. The embroidery is worked on even-weave linen in satin stitch and double running stitch. The book includes traditional designs and contemporary interpretations as well as historical pieces. Here you will find designs for samplers, pincushions, scissor fobs and borders and edges. There are over twenty designs to enjoy. An introduction and stitches helps beginners. The projects are well photographed with large line drawings and clear instructions. I really enjoyed this book - I have an affinity with Spain. The projects are a good mix and are easily adapted with a little inspiration. This 88-page book is the only one I have come across on the subject. It is well worth buying.
