Hardanger Embroidery Book

No. 1

Published by The Priscilla Publishing Co.
Boston, Mass. 1909

This is a PDF Digital Reproduction of a book with instructions and explanations of the different stitches. Stitches are worked in a pattern and the centre portion of fabric is cut away. It is usually worked with white thread on white fabric.  Special Hardanger canvas can be used, or linen.

The stitches are then formed into designs to make borders, runners, centerpieces, or used to decorate corners or edges of tablecloths, curtains, belts, towels, pillow covers, clothing or even button covers. A sampler is suggested as a good beginning.

You will receive a link by email to your pattern book for digital download and there are no shipping charges.
