Little Book of Hardanger
Published by Pinks Press, this lovely little book is ring bound so that you can lay it flat. It contains gorgeous photographs and exquisite projects for you to stitch, as well as a brief history and a clearly explained technical section to help you with this traditional Norwegian stitching. I have tackled this slightly scary technique broken it down into tiny steps.
Your first stitches will be the beginning of a love affair with this technique – it looks so clever and yet you only have to be able to count to four!

The story of this little treasure
I learnt how to do Hardanger embroidery when staying with Ken and Ginnie Thompson in Pawleys Island, South Carolina, and to say that I was hooked was no exaggeration! I have also discovered since then that it can cause such anxiety to the uninitiated. I thought something should be done about this. I could not have guessed that when this pretty book was launched on The Sewing Quarter on 6th October 2018 it would be a complete sell out! I am thrilled to tell you it has been reprinted three times since then.
