In this manual the Embroiderers' Guild of South Australia introduces the almost forgotten technique of Lagartera embroidery, which originates from the Spanish village of the same name. Lagartera is traditionally worked on even-weave linen in satin stitch and double running stitch. Both traditional designs and contemporary developments of these designs have been included, together with historical embroideries demonstrating the Lagartera technique. Among them are designs for samplers, pin cushions, scissor fobs, and borders and edges which may be worked on sheets, pillowcases, bedspreads, clothes and wall hangings, some highlighting the Islamic influence on this colourful peasant embroidery from Spain. Those who have conquered most embroidery techniques should find this introduction to the delights of Lagartera of interest, while novices will find small projects on which to test their newly discovered skills.
