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.
