Creative HardangerBook - 1995
Although believed to have originated in Italy, hardanger in now mainly associated with Norway. Normally, hardanger is worked in white linen thread on fine white linen cloth, with areas cut away and further embroidered to give a delicate, lace-like effect. This book includes projects in this traditional style but the author also demonstrates the use of coloured fabric and thread to show the potential of the designs. With detailed instructions and graphs for more than 20 projects - from a simple bookmark to a more complex christening gown - this work is suitable both for beginners and experienced embroiderers.
