Once upon a time, women graced their homes with beautiful linens embellished with hand stitchery of all kinds. Tablecloths, napkins, runners, pillowcases, handkerchiefs and more were a point of pride among women with social standing. In the 1930s and '40s, Swedish weaving and huck embroidery were among the most popular needlecraft techniques. Five simple and easy-to-learn stitches make up this craft, and now you can learn them in just a little over one hour!

Join Swedish weaving and huck embroidery expert Katherine Kennedy and discover for yourself the ease and elegance of this craft. Katherine explains in detail which fabrics, threads and needles are suitable for Swedish weaving and huck embroidery. Then, she demonstrates each basic stitch step by step as you follow along.

In this class you'll learn how to:
  • Choose fabrics, threads and needles for stitching projects.
  • Work the basic stitches including the straight stitch, slant stitch, loop stitch, double-loop stitch and twisted loop stitch.
  • Read a Swedish weave and huck embroidery chart.
  • Work loop stitches into letters or shapes to add personalization.
  • Finish projects with a pretty, multicolored fringed edge.
  • Stitch a holiday ornament from start to finish during the video.
