Hardanger Filling Stitches - Yvette Stanton

€ 34,00

One of the main features of Hardanger embroidery is the openwork, and within that openwork are countless stitches that can be used to embellish and decorate. This book brings together the widest range of Hardanger fill stitches ever compiled.

It includes both traditional and modern stitches, from the very simple to the incredibly complex, all broken down into clear, step-by-step instructions with diagrams for each step.

There are color-coded left-handed (red) and right-handed (blue) instructions for each stitch. A Hardanger band sampler project contains many of the stitches. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, making it easy to learn. Whether you are a student who performs best by seeing (the illustrations) or reading (the words) or both, you can succeed with the instructions in this book. You learn to avoid problems and have the confidence to correct any mistakes you make. Yvette Stanton's expert instructions will get you started creating beautiful Hardanger embroidery fill stitches.

The project pictured will be a Hardanger band sampler, which will include many of the stitches demonstrated in the book. There will also be historical information on Hardanger fill stitches, including photos of historical and contemporary examples; information about materials and equipment and tips and tricks, including really important information about voltage.

Early Style Hardanger - Yvette Stanton

Taking you back to the Norwegian fjord where it all began...

Early-style Hardanger is not often seen outside of Norway, but is quite distinct from contemporary Hardanger. This historical style of embroidery has traditionally been used on the women’s clothing in the Hardangerfjord region, and was designed to emulate needle-made lace of the 1600s and 1700s.

To research for "Early-Style Hardanger", Yvette Stanton travelled to Norway, studying historical examples of Hardanger at the Norsk Folkemuseum and the Hardanger Folkemuseum. In Bergen, she joined in the celebration of Syttende Mai (17th May) or Norwegian Constitution Day. On this occasion, many Norwegians dress in bunad, or folk costume, to enjoy the festivities. Because of this, Yvette also saw many examples of early-style Hardanger in current use on traditional-style clothing.

This book inspires you to create traditional-style Norwegian whitework embroidery, and demonstrates how to do it in bite-size portions, thereby allowing you to feel the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment of making your own beautiful embroideries.

Marietje Brouwers, born somewhere in the Netherlands in 1908, stitched a small purse with a sampler on the backside at the age of 12. “JB” and “AvG” are presumably her parents.  

In 2022, I bought the framed purse at Marktplaats. Inspired by the purse, I designed a matching needle book and a scissor fob, creating a lovely sewing or embroidery set.

Huck borduren, boek bevat zoveel meer dan de motieven van Facebook. Namelijk:
· Een reeks motieven voor gastendoekjes en handdoeken;
· Een hoofdstuk waarin ik u handvatten geeft nieuwe randen te ontwikkelen - zo eenvoudig en zo leuk!
· En last but not least: een hoofdstuk over Beiers bont borduren.
Het boek is weer een en al illustraties en patronen, ook nog verluchtigd met werk van mensen uit de Facebookgroep
60 pagina’s, full colour.

Boek is vanaf 16 oktober te koop maar is ook verkrijgbaar op de merkwaardig dag op 14 oktober

Benodigde materialen
In dit boek worden de patronen van een lap in Huck techniek gegeven, maar diezelfde patronen
kunt u ook toepassen op Aïda band van 10 centimeter breed.
Als u de lap van bladzijde 12 (of van de achterkant van dit boek) wil maken:
• Mijn lap was 14 count dat is 5,5 bundeltjes op een centimeter. Uw Aida borduurstof moet
dan een lap ter grootte van 50 bij 75 cm zijn, daar zitten ruime zijkanten bij inbegrepen. Bij
fijnere Aïda kan een kleinere lap volstaan, bij grovere Aïda moet u een grotere lap nemen.
• Houd er bij de afmetingen rekening mee dat de randen 48 hokjes breed zijn, drie kolommen
naast elkaar en 8 hokjes tussen de kolommen (= 3x48 +2x8 = 160), dus de te borduren
breedte van uw lap is 160 bundeltjes van de Aïda stof.
Als u op band wil werken:
• Aida band 150 cm lang, minimaal 10 centimeter breed waarin 55 hokjes in de breedte. Deze
breedte hebt u wel nodig, want de randen zijn 48 hokjes breed. Het meeste band van 10
centimeter breed telt 57 hokjes.
Verder hebt u nodig:
• Naald met stompe punt.
• Benodigd garen: ik heb voor de hele lap vier kleuren DMC gebruikt, gewerkt met twee
draadjes van het splitsgaren. Bij heel fijn Aïda werkt u met één draadje, bij grover Aïda
mogelijk met drie. 
• Mijn kleuren (in hoofdstuk 2): hoofdkleur rood DMC 498, daarnaast blauw DMC 791 voor
wat accenten; verder 335 donkerroze en bij één rand heb ik kleur 818 (lichtroze) nog gebruikt.
U kunt natuurlijk - en graag - ook eigen kleuren kiezen.

This 40-page book is full of even more eye candy than "Red Letter Day," with a scrapbook-y feel and lots of photographs and art. Eight samplers are reproduced for this book, and photographs of the originals are included. This has been about a year in the making, and I thank everyone who helped -- my model stitchers, husband, friends and family. It's been a labor of love!

Zwarte merk- en borduurlappen uit het Oldambt

In de afgelopen twintig jaar hebben Hennie en Sjoerd Stevan, eigenaren van het Museum voor Naaldkunst, onderzoek gedaan naar zwartgeborduurde merklappen in het oosten en noorden van de provincie Groningen. Zij zijn er in geslaagd om ca. zeventig van deze bijzondere lappen te traceren. Het merendeel is geborduurd door dochters van welgestelde Groninger boeren uit het Oldambt, het vruchtbare graangebied rondom de Dollard

192 pagina's. Ruim 400 foto's, deels in kleur.
Het boek bevat twee telpatronen van fraaie Groninger merklappen. Formaat 22 x 29 cm


Door het grote formaat past het boek niet door de brievenbus.
