Beginning Hardanger

Hardanger is a province, a violin, and a lovely cutwork embroidery all from Norway.  You will learn kloster blocks, woven bars, picots, dove’s eye fillers, and a charming versatile satin stitch motif.  This little work of art can be easily made into a Christmas ornament or a pin cushion.
