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.
In Hardanger for the Horrified, ebook with video, 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. Along with the 18 attractive projects, which combine Hardanger with cross stitch and other counted stitches, these help to make Hardanger embroidery easy, accessible and fun.
‘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
