Katherine's special is Swedish weaving, also called huck embroidery. Her designs have a bit of a contemporary flare to them yet maintain a traditional look similar to those from the 1930s and '40s. Soon after discovering this craft, Katherine began selling hand-stitched items at shows and in local Scandinavian shops. She also started teaching, and it was her students who really encouraged her to look into publishing patterns. Just over a year later, her first book Easy-Does-It Swedish Weave Towels was published. Katherine now has a full line of chartpacks and kits that are distributed worldwide at her website www.SwedishWeaveDesigns.com.

I loved this class! Katherine Kennedy explained and demonstrated the techniques well and I was able to pick up on the stitches quickly. Since I took the class two weeks ago, I've already finished the Holiday Charm ornament in the blue and white colorway, and have the materials ordered for the Crossroads Runner. Plus, I have some vintage Huck Embroidery patterns passed on by a friend whose grandmother had passed away, and I was able to make a special towel for him using one of the patterns from her book. I'm truly addicted already (am already working on a second towel from the vintage book) and can't thank you enough for teaching this lifelong needleworker a new, fun skill. Thank you!

Ms. Kennedy moves too fast and did not explain certain techniques very well. I understand that it is easy to her, but every time she told me how easy it was, I felt like I was stupid for still having questions. My main desire was to learn how to read the patterns - what stitches went where, how to count the stitches, etc. Still don't understand.

Great tutorial! It was easy for me to follow, and I learned the Nun stitch. I now use this stitch to finish my projects. I am starting on a Crossroads afghan as my next Swedish weaving adventure.
