Naomi Seeger send me this news article regarding her Hardanger Group.
“Hardanger classes are given by Naomi Seeger, member of Sons of Norway, Vestland Lodge 1-601, Minnetonka, MN. The first class of six participants was May 5, 2012. We meet the first Saturday of the month at 1:00 P.M. Most participants are beginners, however, some of them want to once again familiarize themselves with the stitches. Presently everyone is working on the same project, however, once the basic stitches are learned everyone can do their own Hardanger project.
Hardanger embroidery is a form of embroidery traditionally worked with white thread on white evenweave cloth or ivory-on-ivory cloth, using counted thread and drawn thread work techniques. The stitches and skills include kloster block, eyelets, cable stitch, satin star motif, drawn thread, cutting and thread removal and weaving bars.
Each participant has a different background, however, all are true Norwegians who are dedicated to carrying on the Nordic needlecraft.
We enjoy carrying on the stitching of Hardanger!”
