More Information

Lefkara Lace Embroidery by Androula Hadjiyiasemi is one of the very few available on Lefkara lace. It provides the reader with an insight into the history of this beautiful embroidery technique as well as providing instructions through each stage from preparing the cloth, cutting the threads, binding the edges of the cut areas, adding central fillings, working a variety of fillings, working the embroidered parts of the linen, working the hemstitched edges, and working the decorative edges of the finished piece. There is order and method in working Lefkara lace, but at the same time, there is also creative freedom in choosing design and embellishment, because there are so many combinations of fillings and stitched elements possible. This is an intersting historical book as well as an excellent instructional book.
