1 Stone, Patricia. Foreword by Luis Amorim de Sousa. PORTUGUESE NEEDLEWORK RUGS: THE TIME-HONORED ART OF ARRAIOLOS RUGS ADAPTED FOR MODERN HANDCRAFTERS.
EPM, McLean, Virginia, 1981. 
118 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0914440497 Profusely illustrated in color and b&w with photographs, patterns, diagrams. "....readers will find not only a pictorial gallery of a variety of Arrailos dating from as early as the seventeenth century, but also complete instructions for creating any of 13 designs of their own. Never before has the Arraiolos technique been set down in such details and with such helpful drawings. The technique is a counted thread type of e mbroidery that uses several variations of the long-legged cross stitch. The stitches are worked on a choice of canvases from charted patterns and can be mastered in a few hours, even by an inexperienced needleworker. An Arrailos has many a d v a n t a g e s over conventional handmade rugs. Its 'long' or 'third' led of the cross stitch gives extra density and durability. It can be worked by a left- or right-handed person as well as by more than one person at the same time. It make s ma xi mu m us e of w ool yarn because nearly all remains on top of the canvas. And, finally, it requires no lining and rarely, because of the way it's sewn, needs blocking." Slight fading to top/bottom edges of boards, very light wrinkling at t op /bo tto m e dg es of sp ine . Dust jacket is price clipped, has light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light wear at top/bottom of spine, light rubbing and minor soiling on rear panel. Very Good/Very Good
