Hardanger embroidery originated in Norway and is used on household linen and on clothes.  It is worked on “Hardanger” fabric or any evenly woven fabric using a twisted thread such as perle, and is usually self-coloured, i.e., white on white, blue on blue, red on red, etc.  Blocks of satin stitch called Kloster Blocks are worked in a geometric design, and then some threads are cut and withdrawn and the remaining threads are woven together.

Materials needed:-

Frame Either a tambour/ring (round) and/or a slate (square)  8” or 10". Crochet cotton for lacing if using a slate frame.

Fabric Hardanger or evenweave cotton or linen in a count you can see comfortably – large enough to fit frame and with threads that are easily withdrawn. (NOT INTERLOCKING FABRIC)

Threads Perle cotton numbers 5 and 8.  Also bring number 3 if using a fabric with a low count, i.e. 14 or 16.  And if you have it, and are using a fine fabric, a number 12 perle.  The thread should be the same colour as the fabric, also the same thickness as one of the threads that your fabric is woven with.

Needles Tapestry – with an eye large enough to take the thread being used.  Bring a variety of sizes.

A pair of small, sharp, finely pointed, scissors.

Any aid you may find useful, i.e., lamp, magnifying lamp, stand,etc. etc. and don’t forget your glasses!
