I've always wanted to learn Hardanger, but when it came to cutting I was always afraid to do it. I might cut the wrong threads and so on. The online magazine The Gift of Stitching started a Hardanger course each month. I ordered the kit for it and have finished the first 3 classes. The pic isn't very good and I think I need to trim it a bit more, but all in all it turned out ok. It was much easier than I thought. The next ones may not be.
