Hardanger cyber class

If you don’t have the time to go to a class but you have always wanted to learn Hardanger, here is the class you have been waiting for.
I will be teaching a cyber class in beginners Hardanger for the Embroiderers’ Guild of South Australia in June.  The project will be a Scissor fob and Needlecase and between the 2 projects you will learn all the basic stitches of Hardanger and some nice filling stitches as well.  Also the project is small enough that you will easily finish it in the time allowed for the class which is 2 months.
For those of you who have never done a cyber class before and you feel you would like to join one, or if you feel you would like to join, go to the Embroiderers Guild web site at and check out the class information.

Trailing Roses Biscornue

My Silk Ribbon biscornu has just been published in the Embroidery and Cross Stitch magazine 18_9, and there are 2 slight errors in the instructions. First in the ingredients list it asks for 3 x 3mm crystals, these are used for the buttons to pull in the middle of the biscornu and you only need 2.

Then in the construction notes they have moved one of the dots on the diagram so below is the correction.

I apologize for the errors but unfortunately we do not get to proof read the notes or check any diagrams, so any errors that occur in the publishing process we are not aware of until we get our copy of the magazine. If you ever have any queries re any of our published projects we would love to hear from you.
