Hardanger embroidery originated from Norway and is a simple form of  embroidery  traditionally sewn only in white threads on white background.   It involves counted thread stitches, drawn thread work and some pulled thread embroidery. It was traditionally used for linens, caps, and aprons.  Modern patterns include tablecloths, runners, pillows, ornaments and framed samplers.  Most often geometric in design, it is also possible to create pictures in Hardanger.

    These are two embroidered hexagons which will become part of a quilt when I have stitched about 280 of them. The last Queen sized quilt took 3 years to embroider and construct. I’m 1 year in with this one! Photo 3 is the last quilt.

    I inherited many one offs of variegated Anchor threads and to find a match was a relief. I do prefer Anchor threads, but they are difficult to find in NSW.

    Gorgeous colours and a great price.
    Here are some cards I have embroidered with the threads using lovely patterns from Karins Creations (purchased from a different website)
