The forty-four patterns which Eleni Kladou - Paleologou has reproduced here are a valuable aid for embroiderers and weavers, who, by copying the patterns can work easily, with the additional aid of the keys to color and stitching. The transferring of chain stitching, characteristic of the weaving of Crete, into hand needle work is an excellent step toward the precise reproduction of an old handicraft in a new form.
