In 1995, in the province of Bologna, an association was founded with the aim of reviving the old art of drawn thread embroidery (Punto Antico). Old patterns were reworked, other techniques included. Punto Antico is a kind of counted thread embroidery in which embroidered fillings and eyelets are put together to form geometric patterns. The work is done on even weave linen, the motifs used are described and illustrated, step for step, and then put together to form borders. – The book is set out as an instruction book to work from, diagrams of the patterns are to be found in the appendix.
