Hardanger for the Horrified! Ebook with Video

Hardanger embroidery is a traditional counted-thread technique from Norway. Frequently used with cross stitch, it has a reputation for being difficult because it involves cutting away fabric threads to create its characteristic lace-like patterns.

This ebook is the perfect introduction to the technique. There are projects for the complete novice and also more challenging projects for when you have cracked it!

In Hardanger for the Horrified, bestselling author Jane Greenoff of The Cross Stitch Guild takes the stress out of Hardanger by explaining the techniques in simple steps and showing that they are not difficult once you understand some easy principles.

The videos show Jane demonstrating how to do the crucial techniques for the more scary bits. Along with the 18 attractive projects, which combine Hardanger with cross stitch and other counted stitches such as pulled thread embroidery, these help to make Hardanger embroidery easy, accessible and fun.

Material packs for the projects are available from The Cross Stitch Guild.

This book is ideal for beginners; the video clips really help to show you what you should be doing it’s the next best thing to having someone in the room teaching you.‘- The Sewing Directory

  1. Trevor Wiggins

    This is the first e-book I have ever purchased. Being of the ‘old school’ i.e. I’m used to holding a good old fashioned book , I found the e-book VERY EASY to use even though computers are not my thing. Everything is explained simply so it’s up and running in minutes ( there is a help number if needed ). The explanations of how to do Hardanger are first class and the patterns are beautiful. The only problem I have is which pattern to try first !!!
    If you have ever met or seen Jane Greenhoff on television you’ll know how enthusiastic she is about stitching. When playing this e-book I feel I’m having a private lesson with her and that she’s in the room with me. A big plus side is that it takes less shelf space than a normal book. – S Harris on amazon.co.uk

    This book is a pdf e-book which you buy on cd [or as a download]. Written by popular cross stitch author Jane Greenoff it introduces the reader to the Hardanger embroidery technique. The book starts by explaining what Hardanger is and covering the history of the technique.

    Next there is a chapter on the basics with useful diagrams and integrated video. You are then encouraged to try one of the projects to help you master the technique. The projects have step by step instructions, diagrams, video guides, photos and stitch charts – more than enough to guide you even if you have never tried Hardanger before. There is a stitch library at the end of the book.

    Projects include a pretty needlecase, a scissor keeper, a needle roll, some samplers and a book cover. They have really made the most of the e-book format with lots of integrated links to you can easily get back to the techniques section, or the relevant video clip if you need help with any of the projects.

    This book is ideal for beginners; the video clips really help to show you what you should be doing it’s the next best thing to having someone in the room teaching you. – Fiona Pullen of The Sewing Directory

    This ebook is VERY EASY to use . . . . I have done cross stitch for many years, but have never had the nerve to try Hardanger as it has always looked complicated and you always have the fear of cutting the wrong threads! Not any more! This lovely ebook takes you from the very basics up to more adventurous projects! With step by step instructions not only written but also presented in video format by the wonderful Jane Greenoff! The 18 projects are lovely and make you itch to stitch, but I would recommend working through the basics first as does jane in the cd! This ebook is the next best thing to attending a hardanger class and I would highly recommend it if you are thinking of starting Hardanger! – suzanne on amazon.com

    A professionally produced ebook with all you need to know about hardanger. The real bonus is the videos because you see the processes first hand. Contains beautiful projects with detailed graphs and stitches. I love the White on White miniature project but all the projects were things I wanted to make. There is also a handy stitch guide at the back. If you have ever squinted at charts and instructions and wished they were bigger – this is for you. If you have been looking for useful but exciting hardanger projects for all skill levels – look no further. If you are a beginner, make this ebook your first stop. I thoroughly enjoyed this ebook. . . . It even includes a separate file for the videos if you are encountering problems getting them to play within the pdf. Karen Platt
