CREATING HARDANGER EMBROIDERY
This class will teach you how easy and satisfying it is to stitch an heirloom that will be cherished for years to come! Beautiful Hardanger embroidery is a traditional form of Scandinavian needlework, originally from western Norway, near the Hardanger Fjord. The finished product, classic in design, appears intricate and complicated. In reality, only a few basic stitches are involved, and these can be mastered by even a beginning stitcher. Traditionally, white thread on white fabric is used to decorate clothing and linens. However, the beauty of Hardanger embroidery is that you can easily change it to suit your taste. Using different fabrics and embroidery threads brings a fresh new look to a traditional art form.
Arroyo Grande resident Nancy Hetrick, with 50 years of embroidery experience, is an accomplished and inspiring instructor.
