PATCH FLORA – HARDANGER DESIGNS

Hardanger embroidery is a hand technique originating from Norway. It involves satin stitch, cut and drawn threads and woven bars done on evenweave fabric to produce a textured yet airy effect that is unique. Built up in simple steps, it is much easier than the final elaborate effect would suggest!

The designs are sold as digital products in pdf format. Once Patch Flora has been notified of payment by PayPal, the pdf file/s will be emailed to you as an attachment or attachments, usually within 24 hours. Each attachment will contain a list of equipment and materials needed, detailed stitching chart or charts, order of working, illustrated instructions for the stitches used, helpful tips and colour photograph of a worked example.
