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.
Class includes complete instructions to make eight exclusive projects from five Swedish weave and huck embroidery designs: Crossroads Runner and Afghan, Tulip Wheel Place Mat & Napkin Ring, Skylark Tote, Arrowhead Towel, and the Holiday Charm Ornament & Card.

I bought this class on a whim during a short sale and am enjoying watching her go through the steps. She is easier to understand than a book I was trying to follow. I had never heard of this type of needlework before and am excited to try it.

Superb very helpful. Rarely I will rarely comment or rate courses but I find the overall rating of this course very low.
I enjoyed this course and bought many patterns made by the instructor. All very well done and very well explained.
My first language is french and I am able to follow all the instructions and did not have any notion of this type of needlecraft. Consequently I think that my rating is more than fair.

This video was an answer to prayer. I had done some Huck Toweling many years ago. I was looking for patterns to get back to it when I found this video. I found out I did not remember as much as I thought and learned there were many new materials with which to work. Thank you

I found this dvd to be something I have waited for, I used to do this many years ago and have some old pattern books of this craft, like seeing the updates on threads and fabrics and tools used, however, some of the designs are very familiar as I have used these many years ago, but there were a few new ones. I enjoyed the teaching in this class and did not find it to be too fast paced as others have said in previous reviews. Bravo to the teacher!
