5.0 out of 5 stars this is my favourite Hardanger book 2 May 2005
By rachel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is fantastic! I wish I had had it when I was beginning hardanger. It has very clear step by step stitch instructions with really nice diagrams that are clear and understandable. It has lots of hints and tips to make your work better. It shows you how to fix any mistakes. It tells you how the stitches should and shouldn't look - which other books don't do.

And then there's the projects - they're not just all doilies. It also has cushions, bolster, cards, scissors case etc. The projects show a range of finishing techniques, meaning that you don't just have to frame everything!

I highly recommend this book to ALL hardanger embroiderers: both beginners and advanced stitchers will get a lot out of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the BEST Hardanger Books out 13 Oct. 2005
By R. Russell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I started doing hardanger about 2 years ago and taught myself from magazines -- and yes, I learned had some bad stitching habits. I've been looking for good reference books to help me really learn the correct way to stitch. This book is at the top of my list! I love the layout -- starting with the basics and working up to the most complicated techniques. The excellent illustrations and explainations on the right and wrong way to stitch really helped me to see what I was doing wrong and how to stitch the right way. And I know for a fact that the explainations on how to fix stitching and/or cutting errors are easy to understand and follow. Whenever I come to a stitch I haven't done before, this is the first book I pull out!

Now, lets talk about the projects and pictures. There's a color photo for each project in the middle of the book and a black & white photo with each project. The charts range from beginner to advanced level, and trust me, you'll want to stitch each one. The fibers and fabrics called for are pretty easy to acquire either from your local store or the internet; and if you need to substitute something, you can do so with ease.

I can't recommend this book highly enough!! And if you have any questions about the designs or techniques, you can reach the author via e-mail and she's friendly and very happy to help. Whether you're a beginner or have been stitching for years, you can't go wrong by adding this book to your library!
