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is the kloster block formed by working groups of satin stitches; between the blocks, the fabric threads are cut and withdrawn to leave holes and bars of loose fabric threads that can then be embellished by needleweaving and the use of decorative stitches.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.

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. One pretty con ceit is the little Hardanger medallion used as the cover for button molds.When undertaking a...

As Quick as Fire: The Art of the
The music of the Norwegian Hardanger fiddle is a living art, passed through centuries note by note, bowstroke by bowstroke, in an unbroken chain from teacher to pupil. Its harmonies are so intricate that it is often difficult to believe that a single instrument is creating such a waterfall of sound. Knut Buen is one of the foremost masters of this living art today. In his playing one may hear the stark power of ancient Norwegian mythology, the hypnotic energy of impassioned tunes said to make chairs and tables dance across a room, and the plaintively beautiful lyricism born of life in a majestic but arduous and isolated land.
