The Priscilla Hardanger Book: A Collection of Beautiful
Excerpt from The Priscilla Hardanger Book: A Collection of Beautiful Designs in Hardanger Embroidery; With Lessons and StitchesAs the square is the principle upon which Hardanger embroidery is based, any fabric woven with a square mesh so that warp and filling are the same size may be used. When the threads are drawn, a per fect square must always result. Hardanger canvas, manufactured especially for the purpose, is most commonly used, and the various sizes of scrim and Congress canvas are also suitable. Many dress materials are adapted to this work, and the possibilities of Hardanger embroidery directly upon the fabric of the dress, and worked in the same or harmonizing colors, is especially alluring to the feminine mind.The uses to which this beautiful embroidery may be put are many. With the Norwegian woman the apron is a most important part of her wardrobe, and this she decorates most elaborately. Hardanger embroidery makes an excellent decoration for curtains, portieres, and bed-spreads. It is a beautiful ornamentation for lunch-cloths, sideboard scarfs, buffet-covers, tray-cloths, bags, collars and cuffs, belts, blouses, towels, centrepieces, pillow-covers, and gowns.

The New Anchor Book of Hardanger Embroidery Stitches
The New Anchor Book of Hardanger Embroidery
Hardanger embroidery is a type of openwork originating in Norway. Its key characteristic is the kloster block formed by working groups of satin stitches; between the blocks, the fabric threads are cut and withdrawn to leave holes and bars of loose fabric threads that can then be embellished by needleweaving and the use of decorative stitches. This essential guide covers materials and equipment, perfecting the Hardanger basics, and a range of decorative stitches worked step-by-step including lace stitch fillings and wheel patterns. Traditionally Hardanger motifs were worked white on white, however many of the featured designs explore how colour can be effectively introduced. There are charts for 36 border and motif designs and a range of project ideas show how these can be used to make attractive gifts or items for the home.

Mary Thomas's Embroidery Book (Dover Embroidery, Needlepoint)
Mary Thomas's Embroidery Book (Dover Embroidery,
In her Preface to this book, celebrated needlecraft authority Mary Thomas declares that, "embroidery, like every other art needs to be understood to be enjoyed. Once the rules of the game are known, there not only comes the urge to create with needle and thread, but a knowledge which enables the better appreciation of the old masterpieces, as well as those produced in our own day." With this ambition in mind, Miss Thomas takes the reader on an encyclopedic tour of the world of needle art. In an effort to develop a full appreciation of embroidery, she explores virtually every technique — indeed, she covers just about everything that can be done to fabric with a needle and thread, including Appliqué, Cutwork, Patchwork, Assisi cross stitch, Filet darning, Quilting, Blackwork, Hardanger embroidery, Smocking, Broderie Anglaise, Jacobean embroidery, and Tapestry.Over 30 different types of traditional needlework are introduced and explained in this book. Miss Thomas describes each technique, including historical background, then explains how each is worked. For further clarity, over 400 helpful illustrations are provided, including examples of "old masterpieces." The final chapter of the book offers technical hints and advice on materials and equipment.Experienced and novice needlew...
