I taught myself hardanger using this book alone. My first project is nearly completed and looks very nice. The first part of the book teaches each of the different stitches required to complete the projects in the book. There are many illustrations that clearly show each step of a new stitch and make it easy to learn. Once all of the stitches are taught, she moves into the projects. They are arranged in increasing order of difficulty and start with a small sampler and end with a christening gown. I highly reccomend this book for anyone who is interested in exporing hardanger embroidery.

How I learned Hardanger 23 Nov. 2005
By Arana Rosa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is an absolute gem. This is actually my first Amazon review. I was so outraged by another posting, that I decided I needed to add my own.

For years, I had wanted to learn Hardanger, but not living close to a stitching shop and being somewhat intimidated by the beauty of the technique, I just admired the pieces in magazines.

The challenge with learning any stitching technique without a teacher is the need for precise, clear and well drawn instructions. I found all of this in this great book that I stumbled across at a local bookstore. So, if you have been dying to learn this technique, please pickup this book.

Other Hardanger recommendations include anyting by Janice Love & Linda Driskell. I discovered both of them after this book, and must haves include: Hardanger Basics & Beyond, Janice Love and Fundamentals Made Fancy, also by Janice.

Good luck on your Hardanger journey, and please don't listen to the purists who insist on not using colored fibers and fabrics. I love the look of Hardanger on white & ecru, but I firmly believe that fabrics & fibers should be chosen based on your own taste & the purpose of the piece.

BTW, I would also recommend finding a local stitching shop. I have a few that I frequent now and it's worth the long trips I take to get there. The patterns, fibers, and fabrics you will find as well as the great people you will meet are worth the time & effort. Also, please look into a local chapter of the Embroiders' Guild of America at [...] Enjoy !

Pretty projects but not-so-hot directions 16 Dec. 2012
By Jane in Milwaukee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I like to be helpful in these reviews so I uploaded several images above. There are so many hardanger books out there--I own a lot of them--that it's nice to see what you're getting. Especially if there is no "Look Inside" feature. I own hundreds of other types of needlework books as well but lately have focused on hardanger because of the diversity of stitches. I love this book because of the pretty projects; it's refreshing to see pieces that go beyond white-on-white. However, the stitch diagrams leave something to be desired. My watermark is always the bullion stitch, one of the hardest ones you can use. There are 7 steps to making it and this book shows only 3. Unless you're familiar with this and some of the other stitches, you'll end up frustrated. I'm an advanced stitcher and have many reference books on stitches and several that display over 100 different variations in hardanger, hemstitch, insertions stitches and surface stitches.

If you want to get into hardanger, I highly recommend any book by Janice Love, particularly:

Hardanger Basics and Beyond
Fundamentals made fancy: Hardanger

Once you've mastered these techniques, which are very clearly demonstrated, you can graduate to Emie Bishop or some of the Dover books on hardanger.

PLEASE BE ADVISED: in June 2013, Amazon removed customer-uploaded images from product pages. Sorry.

Creative Hardanger 7 Aug. 2009
By Susan Oxendorf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love the color added to the hardanger. I'm new at hardanger and am going to try some of these designs. They have clear directions and the designs can be modified to framed pieces as well.
