Sardinian whitework hand towel class with Yvette Stanton

This handtowel featuring a style of historical Italian whitework embroidery is from my new book "Sardinian Knotted Embroidery: Whitework from Teulada". The style is called Punt 'e Nù, and is from the town of Teulada, Sardinia, Italy.

It features a design using traditional motifs, worked in a simple knotted stitch. The front end of the towel's hem is worked with a peahole hemstitch. Mitred corners are also worked, in conjunction with regular hemstitching for the rest of the hemming.

This hand towel class is one of the first opportunities for students to learn this technique from me. It is a counted embroidery, worked on 28 count linen. Experience with counted embroidery is recommended.
