Hello Pam, I am just starting to teach myself how to do Punto Antico. Which of Bruna's books would you recommend to start? Thanks! Saleemah

Oh WOW! I would normally expect to say start with Book 1 but as they have improved their photography and used coloured threads, the instruction details have improved so I would say Book 6 and Punto Antico Treasures in Mauve. Book 6 has clearer instructions for the Peahole border I've done on this mat... I love this border so much I think it's become my "trademark" LOL. Book 6 also covers lots of cut border type patterns and motifs, the Mauve book also has similar satin motifs but also covers some of the cut work patterns with bullions. It has a surprising amount of stitching detail in it, even tho it's small projects. I haven't got all the books, but I do have access to them all except Book 7... each book teaches something tantalizing and different... they would have to be my favourite embroidery books to just sit and flick thru! Happy stitching Saleemah... please keep in touch!
