Reviews

This book does what it says on the cover. It is a step by step manual for those wishing to learn hardanger to the more experienced Hardanger Embroiderer. In black and white it gives clarity to the charts and designs which would be lost in colour. It is a well thought out book with great attention to detail from reading a Hardanger chart to the stitching order. It removes the mystery of looking at a chart and not knowing where to begin. It even tells you how to fix mistakes!!! Complete and detailed stitch instructions and techniques from Kloster Blocks to a looped picot, this book has it all. Following on from the stitch techniques are a selection of projects to complete. A must for the bookshelf for anyone interested in hardanger.
