Hardanger Filling Stitches

£17.99

A step-by-step handbook by Yvette Stanton

Pre-order
Book Description

One of the major features of Hardanger embroidery is its cutwork, and within that cutwork there are myriad stitches that can be used to embellish and decorate. This book brings together the widest range of Hardanger filling stitches ever compiled.

It includes both traditional stitches and contemporary ones, from the very simple right through to the incredibly complicated, all broken down into clear, step-by-step instructions with diagrams for every step.

There are colour-coded left-handed (red) and right-handed (blue) instructions for every stitch. A Hardanger band sampler project features many of the stitches. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, making it easy to learn. Whether you’re a learner who works best by seeing (the illustrations) or reading (the words) or both, you can find success with the instructions in this book. You will learn to avoid problems and have the self-assurance to fix any mistakes you make. Yvette Stanton’s expert instructions will help you on your way to making beautiful Hardanger embroidery filling stitches.

The featured project will be a Hardanger band sampler, which will feature many of the stitches demonstrated in the book. There will also be historical information on Hardanger filling stitches including photographs of historical and contemporary examples; information on materials and equipment and tips and tricks including really important information on tension.
